Wow Mario, this is a fab shot. I do like taking photos of Pigeons, they seem to be very photogenic. This is a champion one with that water drop dripping from the beak. You have a perfect exposure considering the harsh and bright light in the Greek Islands. Colours and tones wonderful and all nice and sharp. Wonderful pose and great pov. I hope the Pigeon managed to catch enough water. Great composition all round.
