|I didn't want a mere strutting pigeon pic ... though I wasn't actually planning on a risqué shot ;-) This was at the zoo, and there were a bunch of people around me completely oblivious to the pigeon procreation taking place in the tree.
Not a wonderfully crisp shot and certainly not pretty, but I'm hoping it amuses a few people. Their expressions and the fact that they looked right at the camera ought to inspire a giggle or two! Hated it in color; hence the BW.
PP - converted from RAW, monochrome, levels, cropped, dodged/burnt birds and branch some, increased contrast, cloned hen's eye where it looked weirdly dark, resized, sharpened, added border.
