Rock Pigeon: Kennebunk, Maine, USA — You can tell I am desperate for photographic subjects when I start photographing Rock Pigeons…Robins, Mallards, etc. I found myself photographing all three yesterday, here in Kennebunk, Maine. They were there, and little else was, of course, but I was also appreciating their beauty…which most of the time I overlook. The iridescence on the throat of this otherwise basically gray Rock Pigeon really stands out. And note the bright red eye. This bird is actually a pretty fair example of the typical wild Rock Pigeon, harkening back to the original stocks that came over from Africa to colonize North America. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos. ISO 100 @ f5 @ 1/1000th.
