Pigeon on the tube

So it’s true. Pigeons DO ride the tubes. I witnessed it for myself yesterday afternoon. On an almost-empty Hammersmith & City train waiting to depart at Hammersmith station. Not only did I witness it - and a number of other pigeons doing the same thing - I surreptitiously managed to capture it on cam:

Pigeon on Hammersmith & City tube train

High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

From “Eagle” by ABBA
(If you click on the lyric extract above - you can sing-a-long to that song Karaoke-style!)

Well - like I say: I was just hanging around waiting for the train to go when three of them hopped into my carriage - and I managed to snap one of them before the other two got off and got into the next carriage. They all got off again at Shepherd’s Bush - lazy sods; it was probably because it had just started to rain.

Re the graphics - so what filter do you use to get those cool horizontal etch lines in your images?
