Good morning Joe
A superb close up here, perfect DOF giving fine sharp detail and excellent colour saturation too. Nice story here too I hope all goes well with his release. I have taken in a few chicks in my time and its very rewarding when they fly the nest.
TFS kind regards Helen

Man, I'm really teared now :-) I hate pigeons, probably as most dwellers of big city do. But, this one looks just great! Probably best portrait of pigeon I've ever seen. Very detailes, with fantastic colours. Send more of this kind and I'll start to like these... birds ;-)

lovely to hear that story, if only there more people in the world like you mate. Most people don't like pigeons and wouldn't have bothered...good on ya :o)
As for the shot, well it's typically Joey...excellent detail, superb DOF and well composed.

Very nice and sharp Joey...I know of others with dedication as you, taking animals to the vet..Here in the states if we do so, it will cost us tons of bucks...Is socialized medicine extended to animals in England or do you have to pay high bills? A good lesson here along with notes..

Hi Joey. Now we will have to call you the Pigeon Man. This is a fantastic close up of the one in your garden. I do like the colours in the feathers which you have captured with fine detail. And the unusual shape to the black part of the eye. well done TFS.
Have a good weekend.

How nice that you have a new brother. That is so wonderful that your family is taking care of the little one. I'm sure you'll post shots of him. I want to see him flying around the bedroom. Wood pigeons may be common but are very beautiful. You captured the beauty perfectly in this closeup. The face is wonderful and the irridescent colors are beautiful.

Well... as many here voiced, pigeons perhaps because they 're abundantly seen are n't really the most favoured and liked bird especially for photographing.
But i think the sheer magic created by you makes this one shot very much loveable.
Amazing clarity and sharpness and excellent details in the eye, the beak etc.I love the supersmooth green BG that so well compliments the metallic green on the bird's neck.
Would love to add this to my Unforgettable theme.
TFS for sharing this beauty
