whoa, love the forward action of the last framed dove. The sound they make with their wings is amazing.

That's the bluest rock dove I've ever seen! And that last shot, spectacular!

Thanks. I'm pretty sure they are woodpigeons. They're quite a lot larger, and much tastier looking.

There's some weirdy lighting going on in the first shot which is probably what's making it look so blue. There's about a 50% chance it's the same bird in both shots.

*nods* Now I see the difference in build between the woodpigeon and rock dove (aka common city pigeon over here). Even with the color gone a bit funky, still an excellent pic, as are they all.
