[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this is the no.5 picture from the city neighbours series;

The Rock Pigeon (Columba livia), or Rock Dove, is a member of the bird family Columbidae (doves and pigeons). In common usage, this bird is often simply referred to as the "pigeon". The species includes the domestic pigeon, and escaped domestic pigeons have given rise to the feral pigeon.

Wild Rock Pigeons are pale grey with two black bars on each wing, although domestic and feral pigeons are very variable in colour and pattern. There are few visible differences between males and females.The species is generally monogamous, with two squabs (young) per brood. Both parents care for the young for a time.

Habitats include various open and semi-open environments, including agricultural and urban areas. Cliffs and rock ledges are used for roosting and breeding in the wild. Originally found wild in Europe, North Africa, and western Asia, feral Rock Pigeons have become established in cities around the world. The species is abundant, with an estimated population of 17 to 28 million feral and wild birds in Europe.

Salut Septimiu
Foarte bune detalii pe subiect, cred totusi ca e cam strans cadrul. Per general o poza buna.
Numai bine.

Hello Septimiu,
A fine close capture of a Feral Pigeon, a descendant of the Rock dove taken from a good side POV with excellent sharpness to show the ruffled plumage in fine detail in this frame-filling composition.
TFS and best wishes,

Ciao Septimiu, beautiful pigeon with wonderful red eye, fine details and splendid sharpness, superb focus with great blurry BG, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Nemes,

indeed another city neighbour, personally I would have been more space around the dove right and beneath.
Beautiful details and colours.

Hi Septimiu,

Seems that all cities have similar birds. This Rock Pigeon is wonderful. The face, eye and feathers are excellent. I love the pose, colors, details and composition.

Buna Septimiu.

Compozitia ta , ca de obicei foarte frumoasa cu detalii foarte clare.

sincera sa fiu imi place acel *rosu* de la picioruse foarte bine scos in evidenta in contrast cu penele . iar ochiul porumbelului foarte patrunzator mi se pare.
Fotografie reusita din punctul meu de vedere.
Felicitari !
