Proud Pigeon

'Proud Pigeon' (2011) by photographer Susan Tong. "My boyfriend and I went to the Paradise Park Farm when we were in Koh Samui, Thailand. We rode our rented scooter all the way to the Farm and the place was amazing. These little pigeons were wondering around freely. It was great to see the animals have been taken care of." via the photographer's site
