    Rare birds ... for Paul

    These well-fed feathered friends are just waiting for the lunch crowd in center city. McDonald's and the food cart offer a nice menu of scraps for these birds. They seem to know just when lunchtime rolls around, and there will be dozens more waiting to swoop on those Big Macs, fries, and hot dogs.

    Fantastic shot Charles, I really like the angle, the perspective. All in sharp focus and vivid color.
    Excellent job.

    But Paul, notice how I got a nice pattern going in the frame with the pidgeon poop. Actually, I think I WOULD rather shoot young femal models. :-)

    A pidgeon, is a pidgeon, is a pidgeon! Why they ever called those things doves is beyond me.

    It is a nicely composed shot. Great colors, and if you've ever seen anything like this, you know the anticipation.

    I also like your idea Paul: stick with young people and 18-22 females please

    Poop pattern?

    LOL! Now that you mention it... nevermind.

    I really like this photo. It's got a lot going for it.
