….although if pigeons are flying overhead, I don’t know that I would want to look up at quite that point in time!
These two pigeons didn’t want to hang around for long, but I was quite pleased I was able to get a photo as they flew past.
If you take a walk through the city centre, you’re most likely to get an encounter with one of the pigeons. I’ve never understood why, but they seem to enjoy taking off and flying very close to people’s heads before heading to the roof of the nearby shops.
There must have been at least 30 pigeons sitting on the grass, and I thought it’d make a great action shot. The pigeons however, had other ideas, content to sit eating while I took photos of them. As I went to walk away, they suddenly all took off, flying over my head to a nearby roof, which lead to some interesting photos!
I didn’t actually use the camera screen to line up the photo – there wasn’t time! I just aimed in the vague direction, and kept taking photos until they’d all flown over.
Using my camera’s ‘sports mode’ was obviously a good choice – the photo shows every bird mid flight, with no blurry wings!
