This morning we took the boys down to the lake so that they can go and play and climb in the trees.
I went my own way looking for the Mother Coot and her chicks and the Kingfisher but no luck. So I went and sit on the little bench and watched the Geese and ducks swimming on the lake. I heard the Hadida’s screaming and the next moment they were flying off. I got this one just in time…
It’s cold outside and the pigeons are all sitting in little bundles on the branches to get warm. One pigeon however sitting all alone on a branch way on top of the Oak tree caught my eye.
I took a photo of it and then waited for it to take off. I stood outside in the cold for half an hour before the pigeon decided to take off. Only after I took the photo’s of the pigeon taking off I realized that I was still in manual mode. The photo’s did not come out really great.
