into the wild, sort of


please click on photo to see pigeons faces up close



that's what it felt like when I pulled into the parking spot beside where all these wild pigeons were hanging out. though my camera wasn't able to capture the whole line up that sat atop the full length of this fence, you can see many on the ground as well as the dozen or so that are more noticeable. when I started snapping their picture they began flying all around me. I felt like I was in a scene from hitchcock's "the birds". watching as they continued to hover above me definitely sent some shivers down my spine.
today is abc wednesday and the letter for today is W. I picked the word wild to describe both the birds and my spine tingling experience with them.

please go here to see more W representations, thanks to mrs. nesbitt.

You're lucky they didn't drop some stuff to make you feel welcome!

Neat shot!

Jacob,
I've been crapped on by birds so many times over the years I've lost count. I've convinced myself to believe it means lots of good luck!

It's like a scene from Hitchcock's the Birds.

I, too, thought of "The Birds" the instant I saw this. I remember watching an interview with him in which he talked about how man has always hunted animals and how he was fascinated with a story in which the reverse occurred.

interesting photo....I would certainly have had flashbacks to the movie "The Birds" as well.

This is a fun photo...I also thought of the birds...it is even better enlarged with all the motion...someone edited the fence sign...

I love(LUV!) this shot!! The frame you captured the birds in is so beautiful, their wings seeming to disappear into the cold, grey sky....
