BuYousef in Home, bird, flying, homer, homing, kuwait, mangaf, photography, pigeon

I was asked by intlxpatr if our white pigeon, Softmint, is my favourite.  I explained that I prefer the "ugly grey ones" and she asked for a good photograph of one.  This is an old photograph, from October 2008, of one of our homer pigeons returning home.  It doesn't look any nicer, nothing can do that, but I hope you agree that a nice moment was captured.

They may not be good acrobats, nor particularly attractive - in fact they're quite boring - but the way homing pigeons navigate and fly home is impressive every time.
