Just a pigeon taking off from a chimney pot on the roof of my work

It makes me laugh the weird angle it is at

Jon - I'm so thrilled to see this was yours! It's hilarious and excellent.

When I got your PM, I figured I had commented on your FS entry, except I didn't know which one it was. :o)

I was one of your two 10s.

Edit to add: Your photo is so deliciously bizarre that I'm going to fav it.

Looks like he's about to bellyflop! Love this shot. Hysterical title.

Nice capture Jon. It does look as if he has just bumped over that chimney.

very cool. It has a nice oddness to it.

You never cease to amaze me and make me giggle all at once. A great colorful photo that makes me want to see what happens next (actually, now it's reminding me of a crazy bird about to hit a window...).

lol you have a strange sense of humor. This is a great stop motion catch, btw. I think it's funny what one commenter said about the bird about to bump it's head - it does kind of look that way! This is a weird, and yet interesting photo.

Nice shot, but I'd like to see the pigeon more in the shot rather than butting it's head against the right side. If you could legally clone out the pole it would have helped also.

LOVE it! Stop action, background, the feet that match the red thing - awesome.

Funny, but fitting title - took me a moment to actually dig it.

Great capture of taking flight.

It's nice and sharp, but it looks like the bird is about to bang it's head on the side of the frame.

An unusual shot for me. Very sharp focus and perfect timing on your part. Not really an image that would stand out of the crowd, which unfortunately is what you have to have to do well here. I can't really say what could have made this better and I apoligize for that. Good luck to you.
