    Oh my goodness, what a catch. It looks like it could be a bit dangerous with all those birds around it but the image is just great. Very unusual capture. Well done!

  • Carol it was very unusual to see the rock doves appear! Thankyou Carol glad you liked it!

    What a super picture! I guess you were using a long lens so the doves weren’t as close to the helo as it appears.

  • The copter was about 100 ft from the cliff edge when the rock doves flew out, so I would say 50 ft from the copter! I took the shot with a 70-300! Thankyou very much David
