I usually never luck out with birds or any other wildlife photography. They just don't seem to be around me, when I have the camera with me, and on the other hand, they show up when the 6D isn't around. But I lucked out this time!
I had my camera with me, because I was just leaving the house to go for a shoot, when I saw these pigeons in the small park. Within seconds I was with them (maybe even leaving my car unlocked in the parking lot). They were probably eating breadcrumbs someone left for them, so I was able to get up close.

There were some crows with the pigeons. The crows were waiting on the sidelines, ready to jump in.
A happy bunch, having lunch.
A small sound disturbed them, and off they went. Thankfully, not to far away.
The park in the sun of the afternoon.
I do realize that pigeons don't count as wildlife, but indulge me. :)
I was finally able to get some decent shots of birds!
What is your patience when it comes to wildlife photography?
Do you take photos of birds often?
Thank you for visiting.
