1/320, f2.8, ISO 64, Taken in Alexandria Virginia, I was shooting boats and this pigeon landing on the dock and kept looking at me as if daring me to take his picture. So I did.

He knew he was worth photgraphing what a great POV, it make him look like a giant. Beautiful color and clarity. #3420841
