Lady Bird !


On one of my walks I came across this pigeon and was most fascinated by the symmetry in her tail !! It was so beautiful with an alternate feather in black and white .

















What was amusing was as I tried to get as close as possible for a shot , the male flew up and sat in between us in a protective stance !!

Do enlarge for the best view of her tail .

You must have gotten very close, how lucky. Birds can be so tricky to photograph. Just when you think you have that perfect picture, off they go. You can see my rainbow picture by clicking here. – Margy

That is so cool!! The green pigeon looks as though it's talking to the white one on the first picture :)

The tail was what caught my attention instantly . I guess had I been able to get behind her I would have been bale to get a better shot of it.

The uneven surface I was standing on made it difficult for me to get closer. I had to be careful not to make any sudden movements and startle them off.

Thanks all for stopping by.

@napaboniya

perhaps he was warning her that I was taking a 'shot' at her ?!! :P

She's charming--and I love the symmetry. I'm fond of pigeons anyway and this couple is one of the reasons--they stick together!
Thanks for visiting.
p.s. Have you read any Jhumpa Lahiri? I know her experience is slanted toward the American experience of Indians...
