Pigeons frozen in mid-air

It was a short lived Sunday morning ritual. Head out to this really great place with a friend, and disturb a bunch of pigeons, then shoot them in mid-flight. Would've been great. Unfortunately, on the third Sunday, the birds just walked around, without taking flight. From then on, they hardly budged. Then they became positively tame. So images like this can only be taken if you don't get to know your subjects too well.
