I have got an unhealthy obsession with photographing pigeons. They are such a common bird and to many people seen as a nuisance. I do find myself time and time again taking photographs of them.
In many cases it is capturing their behaviour, which can be really fascinating to watch.
Pigeons have a funny mating ritual where they do a little dance and then put their beaks into each others beaks. It is a really odd display and worth watching next time you find yourself witnessing it!
You will also see the dominant male bird chasing away potential suitors while trying to keep the female pigeon interested.
This is a classic example to what I love to photograph – those common, everyday creatures and sites that we take for granted and showing them in a new light.
