Pigeons

I’ve posted photos of pigeons before. Much-maligned, pigeons are actually a favorite of mine. If you’ve ever stopped to look closely at them, they’re really quite beautiful, and you have to respect their ability to survive where many other animals cannot (they’re also not dummies, as it turns out). They’re not a native species — technically, they’re feral — but they’re not invasive either (in other words, they don’t compete and win against native species). Many people are not very tolerant of them, but perhaps that also says something about how they relate to the non-human world?

In any case, I took this shot up in Baltimore last week, at the Harbor, as part of my 365 photo project this year (you can follow it on Instagram!).
