Rock Doves(Columba livia) in Flight

I never really intended to do a posting on Rock Doves (aka: Pigeons), for somehow those birds often failed to attract my attention and I usually took very little notice of them. However, yesterday, I did see a grouping of them in the middle of the river on some rocks, and with nothing else in view, except one lone Cormorant, I decided to take some pictures of them. With the 'click click' of my camera shutter they took off and so most of the images captured were of the birds in flight.

I was very amazed at the beauty of their wings when I downloaded the photos and I was immediately reminded of old images I had seen of 'angel wings' when I viewed their very graceful curves.
