Star Struck Pigeon

by Andy on July 17, 2011

I had an occassion to have to take a picture of myself. I used a time operated camera and set it up at the back of the garden.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the exposure right and ended up trying in three seperate parts of the garden.
I didn’t notice at first but after looking at the photos I noticed that Bobo, our rescued (and now permenant resident) pigeon had made sure he was in almost every picture!!

Below are three examples of the areas I took photos.

The first one shows him on the fence. The second shows his feet on top of the gate at the back and the third shows him looking through the bottom of the window behind me!

Any more pictures and he’d probabley get himself a top hat and cane!

Bobo is cute! I hope Peewee ends up fully grown and a little character just like Bobo too.

Great story, but from looking at the pictures you have provided, I think they might be pigeons rather than doves. Doves are smaller, have different colour markings and some have a ‘ring/collar’ type marking around their neck. Do you have any other photos of the bird from the front?

You are totally correct Dee. I remember when this happened and taking the photos but have no knowledge of why I said it was a Dove??! It’s as though someone else wrote the story but they couldn’t have done. I will change it. Thanks
