Spaniards paint their pigeons

Photos by Ricardo Cases
These photos first appeared in Britain's online Guardian newspaper almost three years ago, on August 6, 2014, showing pigeons painted in Day-Glo colours by Spanish pigeon racers.   Photographer Ricardo Cases captured the captivating world of hand-painted birds in spectacular colours and patterns.   The photos show colourful flying racers from Valencia and Murcia. From the ground, pigeon owners follow the flight of their individual birds which are easily(?!?) identifiable by colour. I think one would need a real 'hawk-eye' to spot an individual pigeon in this visual cacoffony of colour.

Please comment if you wish.

It looks beautiful. Hope the color does not have a negative impact on the birds.
