Never saw wood pigeons eat so fast. They are very careful here. (And a bit fat, so their landing process takes a while usually ;-) Perhaps there are two birds in this one scene? Nevertheless: I like it how you describe the movement in the air and the movement of eating.

Best wishes
Ralf

i agree with Devika and Ralf ... you've captured movement so well. i see this so clearly, Frank.

On the stone pathway, the wood pigeon, a red flower.

I've seen plenty of woodpigeons, but never one eating a grape. Peanuts maybe. But they are gobblers that's true!
