Pigeons and their Antics

Pigeons, Doves, I don't know what to call them. Some are full snow white, some full grey and others somewhere in the middle. These birds can be found on all corners of my house, resting on windows and cable wires. I have always admired the beauty of the snowy white doves (if they are doves) and since I got hold of the 50-200mm lens, I decided to try taking a few shots.

These birds are rather bold and sometimes come up to your feet if they realize you've got food with you. Here's a pair resting high up on a metal rod.

Apart from the full whites, there were half-grey-half-whites too. Here's one of the pretty looking males. Don't you just love that tiny crest on his head?

One day, I was simply checking out my zoom lens, when I heard the sound of flapping wings. I turned to look out of the window and spotted a pair, just a few metres away, that were about to mate! I immediately grabbed a few shots.

The couple then return to their normal poses and act as if nothing has happened.
