Interesting picture. Do you care to explain where you got it from, or did you take it?

Silly photo. Everyone KNOWS that pigeons hold forks with their right wing or foot, not their left.

It's mine and it's art.

It is my attempt at humanising another animal.

Interesting photo

May I ask how you managed to get the pigeon in between the fork and spoon? How long did it take for the pigeon to show up?

It took me about 30 mins to get that shot. I placed birdseed around the plate to entice them in.

There are other pictures but this is the best one.

The pie is a bait. The plate, forks and knives are for the impending bloodshed and massacre

Pigeons for dinner, anyone?

Makes me think of a picture of a goose playing 'cop' while other geese (?) cross the road. It got elected picture of the year a few years back.

maybe you should try to place a cat on the opposite side, and add a bottle of wine nice picture

Waht, kinda like this Hmmm ... not convinced.

I believe that the captured randomness of the animal kingdom can be more artistic than more contrived instances.

Just an opinion.

While you do have a valid point, it doesn't stand in this thread because this is what I wanted to do. I wanted it like this.

Btw a slight difference with your pic and mine is that somebody probably made the dog sit there, I didn't even touch my subjects.

Incase you think your joke has an element of truth to it, birds are a descendent of lizards and not a small furry rat.

Thanks for the biology lesson, jack.

The point is, it's a totally stupid thing to say. Btw noticed I used a smiley in my last post, I was joking with you. You know as a person would when the other cracks a funny?
