The World’s Most Beautiful Types Of Pigeons

The pigeons that we see in cities are just the tip of the feathered iceberg but there are lots of beautiful and unusual pigeon species that many of us haven’t ever heard of.

Pigeons become more interesting when you start learning more about them. Some scientists argue that the common city pigeon, the rock pigeon, might have been the very first bird that humans have ever domesticated. They’re featured as figurines, in mosaics, and on coins from ancient Mesopotamia since at least 4500 BC.

Some of us may have thought more than once that pigeons might be dumb sometimes, but that’s not the case. In 2017, some researchers published a study that proved that pigeons understand the concepts of space and time, just like humans and primates. Also, pigeons are expert navigators. They can find their way back to their nests from 1.3k miles (nearly 2.1k km) away. And the coolest part is that they’re able to do this even if they’ve been taken from their nests and moved in complete isolation and rotated so they don’t know which direction they’re moving in.

22 Pics From Tasteless Weddings Captured By These People

One might think that being a photographer is an easy job. Press the button, and voila, done! Well, it’s not. Have you ever heard of shutter speed? Aperture? DOF? ISO? No? I reckoned so. Not a single professional or skilled photographer shoots on auto mode, and the words above are their bible. Also, it’s not just about a good camera, high picture quality, and whitened teeth. It takes experience to catch all the ‘right’ and perfect moments.

So if you have some dollars to spare, don’t go for the cheapest option available. I’m not saying you are guaranteed gorgeous pictures if you get a photographer that charges $200 per hour. But I’m also not saying that a $20 per hour photographer will do a terrible job. Please research, read the reviews and ask to see their works so you don’t get a pig in the poke.

However, some wedding celebrations may not be saved even by the best photographer in the world. This Reddit group, wittily called ‘Trashy,’ shares ‘all things trashy’: “trashy stories, trashy glamour, all things fake, plastic, and downright trashy, low-class, no-class, white trash, bimbos, and damn proud.” As you might have guessed, we are talking about weddings today. So prepare for some tasteless wedding photos, not because the photographer was terrible at his job, but because.. ph man, I can’t even find the right words to explain why. These are just bad. Just see for yourself.
