I have been trying for ages to get a shot of the pigeons in flight, today, i was rewarded. I just happened to be there when the fanciers turned up and proceeded to let them go. As i have said before, the fanciers in Spain colour the wings and tails with some sort of dye. Oliva, Spain. Kodak Easyshare C653. 15/1/09.

    absolutely glorious capture and wonderful sight, so pretty. They must use a vegetable dye. Wonderful imagery. hugsxxx

  • Thank you Hilary, it must be a vegetable dye, anything else would clog the feathers, whatever, they look magnificent when in flight.

    Crazy pigeons! I thought you’d been playing with photoshop when I saw this. Amazing shot.

  • Many thanks Karen, this photo is straight from the camera, i just have a point and shoot, nothing too complicated for me.

    Super image John, seeing them static in flight like this is wonderful as you can really see all their decorations………… The pigeons aren’t nearly as artistic here….. Most appear to have only a few different colours………. But then if I looked closer maybe they are as colourful! Glad you didn’t get pooped on!

  • Thanks Celia, i put this one down to perseverance, i,d been out every day looking for them.

    I LOVE THIS ONE! There’s a challenge called “I have Wings I can Fly” and you really have to put this one in, it’s unique!!

  • I,m glad you like this Felicity, it would not have come across so well if they had not been painted. Thanks.
