Well, it looks like a wild love. It's cute anyway.

mouth sex.

 

Blogger Abra Exonar said ... (7:23 PM) : 

I really hope they are having sex. Look at those eyes! Closed. The one on the right has completely engulfed the other's beak with it's own. Sexy.

 

Blogger Kyle Dunn said ... (7:24 PM) : 

Maybe fighting then make-up sex.

 

Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (7:25 PM) : 

Ah...os pombos do Rio de Janeiro!

What an absolutely gorgeous 'action' shot! I think they're 'courting' each other ;)

 

Blogger Enigma said ... (7:26 PM) : 

Perfect timing!

Either way, incredible photo. Very nice, as usual. I like seeing non-sartorial work on here too.

 

Blogger Zakuro said ... (8:19 PM) : 

this seems like that one pigeon tries a sex but abother refuses it.

precious moment!

 

Anonymous Melissa E. said ... (8:21 PM) : 

So Latin! They are doing both!

Are you having fun in Rio? Let´s take a beer in Lapa tomorrow? :p

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:50 PM) : 

I think they are having sex, passionate sex:)

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 PM) : 

absolutely LOVE the monotone layering in contrast with the bright red boots. it's not a look i would wear but they pull it off real nice. the texture of the jacket is what brings the whole look together. in a word, FABULOUS.

"sometimes it looks similar."

As with humans.

 

Blogger gregorytoddsmith said ... (8:59 PM) : 

The same can be said about my parents.

 

Blogger marya said ... (9:09 PM) : 

lolz.

 

Blogger Thomas said ... (9:10 PM) : 

Scott! Do you have a bodyguard? How do you walk around Copacabana with a 5d and not get mugged? Our friends in Morro do Cantagalo are curious.

My Carioca friends always said just bring a sunga, 20 reais, maconha y nada mais. That might be more fun but you miss the good fotos.

 

Anonymous Manuela said ... (9:32 PM) : 

Yaaayyy! You're in my hometown! hope to see tons of pics!

 

Anonymous Jasmin said ... (9:39 PM) :

LOL! this is probably one of the funniest comments i've ever read: absolutely LOVE the monotone layering in contrast with the bright red boots. it's not a look i would wear but they pull it off real nice. the texture of the jacket is what brings the whole look together. in a word, FABULOUS.

you have a fantastic sense of humor. and sart, thanks for the gorgeous photo. you even manage to make filthy pigeons look beautiful.

 

Blogger ~A said ... (12:12 AM) : 

Please tell me you posted this after a few drinks.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:57 AM) : 

they might be getting ready to have sex. I saw birds acting like that once, and then start mating. great shot.

 

Blogger jaime. said ... (3:11 AM) : 

It's about to be a... what? BIRD FIGHT!*

bahahaha


*Google Brooke Valentine's "Girl Fight" if you are slow on the uptake.

Coincidence that the thing I have to type in for word verification is "clothy?!"

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:17 AM) : 

Stunning! Absolutely stunning picture!

 

Blogger Barbara said ... (4:18 AM) : 

Does it matter whether they are fighting or having sex - they will hopefully just kill each other! I hate them, they are flying rats.......vermin.

 

Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (6:55 AM) : 

Beautiful shot!

 

Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (7:07 AM) : 

the birds: "i dont know if want to kiss you or kill you."

 

Anonymous Teresa said ... (7:13 AM) : 

It looks like they are kissing each other... Lovely.

 

Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (7:43 AM) : 

Sex and fighting...it's almost the same thing!!

Nice pic.

 

Anonymous vinibeni said ... (8:07 AM) : 

The first in my life I can see beauty in pigeons...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:05 AM) : 

Foreplay!?!

 

Blogger Rafael said ... (9:45 AM) : 

It is a mom pigeon feeding her baby, not fighting.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:54 AM) : 

Yes I cannot separate the difference here at home either ...

 

Anonymous Claudia K said ... (1:42 PM) : 

they fight and make love they fight and make love they fight and make love they fight and make love they fight and make love they fight and make love they fight and make love

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:19 PM) : 

They're fighting. I took a similar picture from my window, it seems pigeons have a hierarchy, they were fighting in order to determine which pigeon was the boss.
My picture is lousy (high iso, low light, it's very noisy), but if you care to see it, it's here:

Anyway, all of your pictures of Rio make me feel like packing summer dresses and get there at the speed of light.

Well, isn't he a casanova! ;)

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:12 PM) : 

with so much amazing things hapening in rio, beautiful people, you are disapointing...birds?
whats that?i´m disapointed..
where are the peoplew we have amazing...not models, but real and brazilian style..i didnt saw yet...

 

Blogger autumn's darkroom said ... (8:01 PM) : 

I don't think it's either...just a spontanious kiss...look how she's caught off guard!

 

Blogger D. Debil said ... (12:46 PM) : 

this shot has a timelessness that fascinated me. How many cobblestone squares over the centuries have been the scene of two pigeons battling for dominance? This picture could be from any age of the western culture.

The perfect composition is so understated as to be utterly invisible.

 

Blogger Tasia L. said ... (2:04 PM) : 

It's so funny that you just happened to be near these two birds and you caught them...red handed

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:17 PM) : 

to the seasoned birdwatcher, that is a mother rock dove feeding its nearly grown chick. Unnerving, all the same.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:44 PM) : 

i think they're kissing

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:56 PM) : 

has anyone who contributed to this comment page seen a fight or sex before? the two look nothing alike. unless we're talking about greco-roman wrestling, of course.

 

Blogger thwany said ... (10:31 PM) : 

hahah

 

Blogger Melanpyge said ... (8:29 AM) : 

They are not fighting. Male and female do that with their beaks always before they copulate.

Pigeon observer and dearest friend.

 

Anonymous effie said ... (8:19 AM) : 

awwhh...love birds kissing!

"has anyone who contributed to this comment page seen a fight or sex before? the two look nothing alike. unless we're talking about greco-roman wrestling, of course."

Ha ha ha good point! But of course if one is suddenly frozen as a single frame it could look like either...

And many a small child has been traumatised by catching their parents in a passionate clasp. "Daddy! Stop hurting Mummy like that!"

 

Blogger Petefrombookham said ... (4:52 AM) : 

Sometimes, it is the same thing

 

Blogger Sui Generis - Me said ... (2:45 PM) : 

wow... all of you r wierd (and funny!)... they're just fighting over food.... "pigeon sex"... u people, seriously.... ^_^
