Camera Critters 5

Some people call them flying rats, other wax lyrically about them. I just felt sorry for this little one. He stood and walked funny because he was missing most of his toes. It gave him a certain air though, a certain elegance and he didn't mind posing for me!

For more critters from around the world, check out Camera Critters and join in the fun!


  1. Aww.. poor little guy. Pigeons get a bad wrap. Great shot of him.

  2. Pretty birdie...I like birdies:)

  3. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

    Wow, I used to drive a large delivery truck, I can't imagine driving a tour bus! I am always in awe of drivers who drive vehicles larger than a house.

    That pigeon is still hanging in there. We get mostly large crows hanging about here.

  4. They aren't the best liked bird around but I do think they have gloriously colored feathers.
    So glad he posed for you.

    Thanks for your visit and yes, my post was a turkey and they do fly if they really need to. I was surprised the baby could already fly.

  5. Poor little guy. They are so pretty. Their feathers *shine*. Too bad they get such a bad rap.

  6. That is sad.
    He seems to be well fed though.
