Softmint

Softmint

Meet Master (or Miss?) Softmint, the first pigeon born at ours and survived the critical early stage.  The heat has been unbelievable, so this little one is a fighter. I posted pictures when he/she hatched and of the parents back in May.

This photograph was taken this morning.  I would like to thank my younger brother for half the name - and the many other suggestions (even the silly ones).

Lovely photo.
Msh'allah so white. The colour contrast between the eyes, feather, and peak is quite mesmerizing.

Thanks intlxpatr.

I had a website with my photographs back in 2001. I actually only started "blogging" two years ago and moved things across from my website. I kept the date order hence the 2001 start.
