Roly Poly

This bird is an aerobatics genious.  Whenever we see him, he's up there showing off his flying skill, and what a skill.  He flies as high as possible - my guess is around 20-25 metres high - and would turn on himself by rolling in the air - head first!  The  children would say the RolyPoly pigeon is up.

This was taken just before sunset.  It doesn't look particularily difficult, but this photograph was a challenge.  I wanted to show the movement of the bird - illustrating this using an atypical flying position.  The low light and his high altitude made it a little tricky.
