During the course of shooting for flight, I had a funny experience.

I was out walking with my wife, and camera, when I saw a bird, a dove I believe, standing out in the road.

I thought, surely when a car comes, he/she will take off. Rubbing my hands together, I trained my camera at the ready to capture the event.

Instead of taking off, though, this silly bird ran out of the way!

Come on! I implored, I'm trying to get my Challenge shot!

Anyway, here's the picture of the obstinate, running dove :) ..

Crazy Bird

LOL! He probably knows it's hunting season and dove is fair game (in some states anyway). If he takes off, he's as good as dinner! Smart bird, I'd say.

I love your photo. Great capture. Certainly got a chuckle out of me. Thanks for sharing.

nice shot.....doves and pigeons around here do the same thing. Guess they are not as scared of a 2 ton vehicle as the rest of us.

Funny shot Mag, I bet if it was a 'catch a bird running' challange this little fella would have taken off straight away.

Some birds will protect there eggs or babies by luring would be egg eaters away. A Killdeer will even flap one wing like its hurt.

Good shot, funny

Hmmm, I'm wondering if THAT is irony :)

Mag, that's a great, funny story! Beautiful shot of a morning dove. Love them, several visit our yard regularly. When they first take off, it's a wonderful sight! Too bad, that would have been a winner for sure!

that's still a good shot, looks like he's running down the runway, ready for takeoff! :)
