Birds. Pigeon and Dove.

Leonardo Da Vinci was quoted as saying that birds and horses were the most beautiful creatures on Earth. I think the same as Leonardo.
This is one of the competition pigeons that have settled in the nearby coppice together with a flock of lay homers.

And this cute turtle dove is looking reproachfully at me, trying to shame me into giving him some grain. If this fails, he/she will either repeatedly batter the windowpanes or demonstratively peck my flowers to blackmail me. Usually, both strategies work.

  1. Your turtledove picture is just amazing. Great composition, great lighting, and just a fine picture.

  2. Thanks a lot. It took me quite some time to make these rascals pose.


Speak out, I'm listening.
