I like the litle story..
Yes , the short distance can be marked from the shot you have thios is tack sharp, with lots of details and colours in the composition.Good pose of the pigeon.

Wow! Wonderful close-up of this pigeon. Even though they are common, they have such a beauty of their own. Beautiful colors - the eye is magnificent - the irridescent neck is amazing. Details could not be sharper - face and plummage are magnificent. By the way, there are no pigeons in Tucson.

I do not have time to leave proper critique; I do however want to tell you this is a super close up with perfect details and sharpness. The metallic colours and the red eye, does it for this pigeon portrait. Thanks for sharing.
