he certainly doesn't look happy with that pigeon flapping on his shoulder

I count 4 of the winged creatures and the Grand Duke has a very very determined look, I'm thinking it's time to fly

excellent photo

I agree he doesn't look happy. :)) It sure could be those pigeons! Perhaps he needs an electric head as Winston Churchill in London to keep the pigeons away.

Brilliant shot VP, I think you might be spot on about what he's thinking!!

Perhaps he's wondering how to get rid of the pigeons from his arm.

He's not the only one who dislikes these critters.

It makes two of us! I didn't know I had so much in common with Leopold! :-)))

He's thinking... stop poo-ing on me! And when do I get a shower?

Rachel said...

LOL! That's funny! Or he could be quoting from one of my favorite children's books. "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus!"
