    Something I've been wondering for a few weeks now. Here are some of my better attempts, let me know what you think. I did my best with the pigeons I had :wink:

    Photo 2 looks MENACING! You survived taking that one? (Must have, else you wouldn't be able to post these... :roll: ;) ). Pity that about all of them flew out of the pre-determined focus.

    Photo 4 is nice. Pity that the background was not dark all over, the pigeon would have stood out a lot more. Now that bright right lower part distracts quite a bit.

    hey these are cool! I like no. 2 and 4 the best.

    Even though they're pigeons, these are still cool pictures and I haven't seen shots of pigeons this way before.

    Nice pictures of the little winged rats. I found the cluster of them distressing. I was like AUGH!! DISEASE!!! AAAAAAAA!!!

    WhichI think means it was a great picture. :)

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Taking #2 was indeed a bit intense! I just had to stand there and hope they'd miss me. Here's another one two secs earlier.

    And also, just for fun, here is a man being attacked by the pigeons :)
