Len said...

I've had them in my tiny garden. They must have emigrated to a warmer clime!

TexWisGirl said...

you know, if they weren't so 'common' in some areas, they'd be considered 'exotic'. :)

Juliana said...

Wow! Cool!
I like the 'rainbows' on their necks!

Have a great day!

Brown Eyes said...

I do not understand much but it seems to me "pombos correios" that are the result of a cross between British and Belgian pigeons. Excellent photo. kisses

Sonia Aguiar said...

Hola :) Realmente son unas palomas hermosas. ¡Felicidades por tan bella imagen! Sonia.

Breathtaking said...

Brown Eyes
Oh thank you! It's kind of you to let me know what you think they are, and you are probably right Brown Eyes.

Sonia Aguiar
Hola: Thank you Sonia. These birds get a lot of criticism, and are not the best loved birds, so it's nice that they can be seen and appreciated for their beauty.

An obese enemy of the farmer transformed by iridescence.
Nature performs some fabulous miracles.

Breathtaking said...

We sometimes see Wood Pigeons,and Collared Doves on the farm, but thats all.This sighting was unusual
but a fabulous sight.I love those iridescent feathers, and couldn't agree with you more.x

Jerry said...

They are so pretty - they look very much like some of our Feral Pigeons which themselves are derived from Rock Doves. Many people wouldn't give them a second look but you have the ability to see and observe these things with 'fresh eyes'.

Fábio Martins said...

They have pretty colours. Good shot

CameraCruise said...

Great shot of the beautiful pigeons!
Love to photograph them too.
Have a great day.

Whatever variety they may be, they definitely deserve having their picture taken..


Friend of HK said...

The feathers do look very pretty~

Breathtaking said...

They could well be a combo of the two.I also like the wide black wingbars that are similar in both the Rock Dove and the Feral Pigeon.

As a colourist, I am drawn to colour like a magnet,which must be
true of most artists!! I couldn't resist these fabulous hues of pink
and blue.
Warmest Regards.
