Taken August 13

Pigeon on a wire in my back garden.
One of the last pictures I took before my camera died - the shutter broke. I put it in for repairs at a local shop and fortunately it wasn't that expensive (the 2nd time the shutter has broken, first time it was under warranty - I take a lot of pictures!).

Also fortunate for me was that my friend had a 40D just like mine that he wasn't using so I could borrow it for a couple of weeks.

even pigeons don't seem to want to get wet

Normally birds in the rain look miserable but he looks like he's actually enjoying it a bit. Lovely color, clarity, and richness!

Is it weird that I always feel bad for the birds in the rain? LOL! Cute shot, wonderful detail, love the splash of color from his feet!

Pretty much looks like my summer - rainy. You did a great job capturing the rain.

Wow! Love those elongated raindrops. Really adds a lot of interest to the scene. And, the raindrops blur out as they blend into the bokeh bg. The pigeon is interesting, too, with fine focus and feather detail. See, this is a good example of the mundane being magnificent.
