This pigeon was making the most of a fountain in Siena,resting on the head of a statue of a wolf. [Could it be Romulus or Remus?]
What an ingenious way to get a drink!

Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean,
Perfect timing for this candid shot of this pigeon drinking from this old fountain in Siena. A very sharp image with the appropriate shutter speed to freeze the action. Perfect exposure management.
Very neat work, indeed!

Hello Jean :)

You seized the splendid scene and you showed animals solidarity beautifully...haha :)
The pigeon is very shrewd and he advises oneself magnificently.
Natural colours, light and perfectly visible details.
Beautiful, interesting composition, very showy.
The excellent realization, I like him very much.

With best wishes.

A razor-sharp shot in which you caught a nice moment, Jean!
Good management of light and well exposed bird busy drinking water.
The colors are natural and details in the shot are fantastic.
Nice job!

Kind regards,

Hi Jean, nice bit of timing as I doubt he would have stayed there for too long. Its a wonder he wasnt sliding off the smooth surface. Fiona
