They can be a bit like snipers in their own way. Great shot, Carver.

When I lived in New York, I heard pigeons referred to as "rats with wings" - they are that prolific up there! But this one is too pretty for such a dreadful nickname. Nice shot, well captured!

Great shot. I like the depth of field of the beach in the background.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Come back anytime.

Lovely shot!

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting. To answer a few questions, I cropped the shot which was how I made it look like I was on the same level as the bird. I took the picture in early June at Atlantic Beach, NC. I had to laugh at some of the comments about pigeons. They are indeed notorious for bombing the unsuspecting as they fly overhead.
