Bird's Eye View

'Sprint' is probably the fastest most  powerful pigeon we have.  However, he tends to spend some nights away from home.  I have no idea where he goes... Unfortunately, it means I can't use him for Project Bird's Eye.  

I have added a new page.  I chose Neubronner as the name of the loft, named after the pioneer of aerial photography using pigeons.  Have a look and check again for updates.  I hope you find it interesting - even if you have no interest in pigeons.  

I've been thinking and planning this since last summer. I can't wait for the potentially fascinating findings.

Oh! Bu Yousef! What a gorgeous photo! The colors are spectacular - the fabulous blue-green shading into blue purple on his throat and that bright beady orange eye! You can see every grain of every feather. Total WOW.

Thank you all... Mathai - I allow their "friends" to stay :) Abid, the lens is a Nikkor 18-200 VR.

Wow. You caught the pigeon at the perfect moment.

Well - I had him in my left hand and I took about 8 shots with my right.
This was the best one.
