Vu la tronche des statues après le passage de ces rats volants, je m'inquiéterai à la place de l'acteur :p
Jolie photo en tout cas :)

Lee from Fort Frances Ontario, Canada

Great shot MAgs. Nicely seen. How long did he hold the pose.

7 Sep 2009 2:48am

@Lee: Thank you. To be honest, as soon as a pigeon was flying away, another one was coming so it was long enough to take many pictures :)

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

Fantastic! Perfect timing :)
