We were moored over in the marina at Stavanger on the last day of our Cruise when this homing-pigeon paused on the rail.

The bird stood so close I had to wonder how far it had travelled and to where it still had to go.

I like the colors of the bird, very nicely captured!

This is perfect. I guess the owner of the bird would be thrilled to have a "portrait" of his little racer...

@Wolfgang Prigge: Yes, I'm sure they would although I suspect that is only a partial number which is visible.

Wonderful photo of an athletic bird, like a demo for an exhibition! He is a perfect specimen!

Lovely pigeon and wonderful captured. Many people don't like pigeons because they use to make the mess all arround but I love them.
