This pigeon had a little shower at the small fountain that is attached to Father Rhine's monument.

Very beautiful detail. I like composition,colors and also curves and contours of this part of sculpture. And the pigeon seems to be happy like a fish in water (french expression : heureux comme un poisson dans l'eau)

@Evelyne Dubos: Thank you! The same proverb also exists in German ("sich fühlen wie ein Fisch im Wasser"); that pigeon was indeed soaking wet :-)
Nice,I like the flowing water.

@Anthony Lambert: The pigeon was nice enough to wait a bit, so I could make my photo. Then it flew away :)
Amazing graphical image with the water etc. The pigeon makes this is a real beauty.

@Observing: Thanks, Mike! Birdie had much fun, it was a joy to watch :)
Even pigeons want a bath from time to time! the fountain has beautiful lines, looks almost like a marine creature decorated with leaves. The curving lines are caressed by the water and the various hues of colours enhance it so much more.

@Japanalia: That's a small fountain at the Rhenus statue, situated at the Ständehaus I posted two days earlier. Quite the right place for such a bucolic scene :-)
A bird has to bathe too! I almost missed the bird at first glance as all of the lines and details in the fountain provide hi quite the camouflage!

@Tracey: Next time I'll take a white pigeon :-D
Really, this one had fun and didn't fly away until quenching her thirst and having a shower. Very enjoyable :)
The pigeon seems quite proud.

@JoeB: I would be proud too - with these red eyes and feet! :-)
Just beautiful - nice colors, like the water too )

@akarui: I would have enjoyed a shower too, because it was a hot day :)
Pigeons love fountains the world around.

@Doug: I think this is a regular visitor of that fountain :)
He seems to regard you with some suspicion.

@Twelvebit: You would do so too if I would be standing in front of you, fiddling with my camera :-D
