The Golden Gate Park in San Francisco is full of birds paired up, or still performing their dancing rituals in hopes to pair up with a mate. Springs brings all kinds of love in the air.

Love the photo of the male doing his little mating dance to impress one of the females. Great composition, extremely sharp and detailed image. Very nice coloration especially the iridescent plumage around the head and neck areas.
I've had a love for pigeons since I was a kid. I used to raise roller pigeons, they would actually do sumersaults in mid flight. They were so much fun to watch as they did their acrobatic flips and rolls.
Your photo brings back a lot of good memories. Thanks for sharing it on TN
