A very nice pigeon portrait.
Lisl: Thank you, Michael - not everyone's favourite round here
That is probably the most beautiful shot of a Wood Pigeon, I've ever seen!
Lisl: Golly, thank you, Elizabeth - taken from the closed kitchen window - I must have just cleaned it!

Bizarre de mettre un pigeon en bois.
Lisl: The pigeon is well behind the hedge, perched on a roof

Looks wonderful, admiring Michael's hedge, Lisl.
Lisl: And that's before it is cut, Ray. Clever of you to recognise it!

She looks like an elegant lady.
Lisl: And a bit stern, Philine

Whenever I see these I think of Penny
Lisl: Of course - I wonder how her rescue bird is getting on
These are the most common bird in our garden!
Lisl: They must have good pickings, Bill
Très belle prise de vue !! trop beau ce pigeon ..
Lisl: Thank you, Claudine - I think wood pigeons are handsome but they are not popular
a rather neat portrait, Lisl. lovely details.
Lisl: Thank you kindly, Ayush
Love this shot with the bright green framing working to perfection.
Lisl: Kind, Mary - out of my kitchen window
This is good Lisl. We have several of these who visit our bird feeders, front and back, during the summer, I'm presuming they are the same ones eacy year.
Lisl: Could be. We try not to encourage them too much as they bring their mates and they hoover up the seed put out for the chaffinches!
Keeping eternal vigilance...
Lisl: It does look like that, Larry
it is a great shot Lisl...
but to my eye it looks more like a wooden pigeon...

judging by the other comments it is alive... so that pushes your great shot up to the greatest shotgrin
Lisl: He was alive OK, Peter, thank you!

Toutes lumières descend du ciel... et celle-là , en particulier est sublime !

Beautiful colours smile

Although I am a little worried... He seems to have his beady eye on you!!!
Lisl: He had his beady eye on what I was scattering on the ground for my chaffinches, Cherie!
