Early evening.
Plump wood pigeon contemplates
the meaning of Spring.

  1. I’m sure he’s contemplating all the pigeon ladies out there 😉
    Or more probably the need to build some kind of nest 🙂
    Well captured Sarah!


    1. Yes, he does have a girlfriend but she kept flying off every time I tried to photograph the pair of them together. I think they both have some very promising plans for spring 🙂


    1. Thank you 🙂 I love the way birds plump out their feathers, so they have giant bodies and tiny heads. When wood pigeons do that, their shape reminds me of fat storage jars topped with small stoppers.
