Pigeon taking a wing bath in the rain


Response to the prompt – ‘Dull’

We had a dull day on our holiday last week. I was watching the rain fall on the road outside, and spotted this pigeon on a chimney-pot. It stretched out one wing, and then the other – it seemed to be having a bath! A bit of a web search showed that this is just something that pigeons do. How curious.
