The pigeon saga 2

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 14 November 2015 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.


A closer look revealed that it had been pecked by the crow!! My hubby remembered that a boy staying in the building across reared pigeons and decided to bring him over and then decide what to do with the bird. It turned out that the pigeon actually belonged to him and that he had been searching for a week!!

CASIO EX-Z60 1/100 second F/5.0 87 mm (35mm equiv.)

Robert D. Burr from Kingston, Ontario, Canada

A bird's-eye view....nicely done Devi. On a sad note the world is a scary place. I do not know what is the matter with people that we cannot live together with tolerance, mutual respect, a joy to share our differences and a desire to help each other.

14 Nov 2015 2:33pm

@Robert D. Burr: Yes Dennis...The times have become scary!!! I don't understand this mad demonic craze for power and destruction.!! Hope good sense prevails!
