The Beady Eye!

This Wood Pigeon landed on the bird table only 3 metres from where I was sitting in my conservatory and, despite my obvious movement in grabbing the camera, preceded to tough it out and attempted to stare me into submission. Or was it just posing?



Taken through the glass with E5 + 50-200mm + EC14

Re: The Beady Eye!

As this good shot shows, I would be tempted to regard Wood Pigeons as attractive birds if they weren't such a pest.

Quite delicious though.

Stand out image David.
Your undoubted skill and the 50-200 + EC-14 showing what a class act they are.

Everyone has said it David - Just a fabulous photo, the colours are superb.
If I looked that good in lilac shades, I'd pose too!

Re: The Beady Eye!

I've ate a woody before, not bad at all, but this shot is great, lovely green background too.

Re: The Beady Eye!

Most of my woodie 'photos' are taken with a shot gun. I put eight in the deep freeze the other day but they won't be there long.

Similar to a shot I've got in my gallery, but mine was taken a quarter century ago.

Re: The Beady Eye!

David,
What a great image - the detail is superb. I enjoy the wood pigeons coming to my garden - they are comical when trying to source food from the feeders.
