hi friends one of the pigeon lose his way and come to our home and i have had an opportunity to take it so close hope you like it

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Columbiformes
Family: Columbidae

The pigeons and doves are some 300 species of near passerine birds in the order Columbiformes. The terms "dove" and "pigeon" are used interchangeably, although smaller species are more likely to be called doves.
The species commonly referred to just as the "pigeon" is the feral Rock Pigeon.
Pigeons and doves are stout-bodied birds with short necks and short slender bills with a fleshy cere.
The usually flimsy nests are made of sticks, and the two white eggs are incubated by both sexes. Doves feed on seeds, fruit and other soft plantstuff. Unlike most other birds, (but see flamingo), the doves and pigeons produce "crop milk", which is secreted by a sloughing of fluid-filled cells from the lining of the crop. Both sexes produce this highly nutritious substance to feed to the young.
This family occurs worldwide, but the greatest variety is in the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones. It is related to the extinct dodo. The young doves and pigeons are called "squabs". A person who keeps pigeons is called a "pigeon fancier".

Hi Ridvan,

Super, super, super. You took a wonderful shot showing what one does not see too often. Lovely clarity.
I find the grey weals around the eye and the orange iris surrounding the pupil fascinating.

Great job.

Rıdvan merhaba,
Muhteşem bir netlik, kutluyorumj. Selamlar. Mustafa

Merhaba Rıdvan,

Silvio'ya yaptıın bir yorumdan yola çıkıp muhteşem portfolyonu inceleme fırsatı buldum. Hepsi birbirinden güzel kareler. Çok başarılı makro çalışmalrınız var. Aynı şeylere ilgi duyan biri olarak ülkemin bu şekilde tanıtılması bana gurur verdi.

Bu fotoğrafınız ise bambaşka bir güzel. Bir gözün bu kadar gizemli olabileceğini hiç düşnmemiştim. Bir tanıdığım tabiatın güzelliği detaylarda saklıdır, detaylara inin derdi. Ne kadar haklıymış..

Tebrik ediyorum. Başarılarınızın devamını diliyorum.

Hi Ridvan,
A wonderful closeup shot of the pigeon eye. Excellent details and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Ridvan !
Wowo, this is an amazing close-up on the pigeon's eye ! Trulay fantastic ! There are so many amazing details in the eye, and I love all these different nuances of orange and yellow. It is something we do not often see and I thank you for sharing it with us.

Wow...that's an amazing shot! Unique view!
There is so much detail - I keep looking back to the photo. Fantastic!!

Never realised a pigeon's eye could be that colourful, Ridvan.
This is a very daring shot once again, but you have managed to get the best out of it. The yellow and orange circle around the black pupil looks marvellous.
Well done and TFS.
