Woodpigeon and an Award

I think I've become a bit obsessed with trying to get a decent bird photo. This morning, when I was making my breakfast, I saw this Woodpigeon in our yard it stayed a round for a long time and took up this position on the seat. I opened the kitchen door but thought I would frighten it away if I tried to get closer. It looks like it is inspecting my car!My friend Kitten gave me this delightful little award that she made herself.
It is so bright and cheerful and that's what blog friends do- brighten up your day. Thank you so much, Kitten, I will be adding this to my special gallery. I won't presume, but I pass this on to anyone who feels I brighten their day.

Birds can be most uncooperative. A good telephoto lens helps -- or you can crop the picture and make it look like you were closer. :)

AC I did put a cropped version on my photo blog-but it's still not that good.

It's definitely giving my car the once over! What you can't see is all the poop on the other side of the car-I should really be giving it a wash.

You'll have to come stay with us. The birds love us 'round here cos we feed them only the best food.
