CommentSpinifex Pigeons are one of my favorite pigeons. They have real character about them and as they go about their business they can often bring a smile to my face. They seem so upright and proper, then all of sudden start to run around in circles or dash this way or that. They are often difficult to spot as they blend so beautifully with their environment. I particularly like this photo taken late in the afternoon as the sun was going down after a long day at the office. The clarity in the reflection symbolizes the clarity I sometimes seek when I reflect at the end of a day over a well-deserved drink. Just like this photo shows there have been some ripples but the light at this time of year in central Australia is just beautiful as the sun goes down symbolizing the warmth of the day that has just passed.
