Don't look back! by jo13

Don't look back!

I was hoping to capture something of interest in the garden today, (I work from home), but instead I get a pigeon scoffing all the bird food, and a photo of him beating a hasty retreat.....hey ho better luck tomorrow.

Great shadows and coloring in the wings and tail feathers. If you hadn't said it was a pigeon, I would have thought it was a much more majestic bird!

Gorgeous detail in the feathers. Fab.

Very interesting perspective and capture.
February 28th, 2013  
I like the perspective. Very clear image too, nice job
February 28th, 2013  
I believe all your pigeons are hawks or eagles Jo. :)

@darylo Wouldn't that be nice, no chance of seeing anything like that in these parts, but I like your thinking!
February 28th, 2013  
Haha, nice. Very impressive wingspan. I guess he was a Steal Pigeon as opposed to a Stool Pigeon. Unless he left that behind too :))

@ditto44 Well no longer having pets is definitely an advantage! Whilst the weather is sooooo grim and I can't people watch I've turned to nature, and I watch...... and I wait, and wait a bit more!!!!
February 28th, 2013  
Great shot
February 28th, 2013  
Does look more like an Eagle. Great capture of the wing span.

@rg37 Thanks, I see we are neighbours!
February 28th, 2013  
I had my money on some sort of eagle! Given my recent (poor) attempts to catch the red kite, I'm jealous of this shot!
February 28th, 2013  
I am laughing at your greedy pigeon scoffing the goods :-)

Fab shot
February 28th, 2013  
Another stunning bird shot Jo!
February 28th, 2013

Beautiful shape of tail feathers and those perfectly centred little pigeon-toed pigeon toes :0)

Love this Jo - great pov - feels like you are in hot pursuit of that greedy pigeon! The pigeons in our garden are so fat they can hardly take-off! Congrats on smashing the 2 month barrier, March here we come! : )))
