Cool shot. He's just chilling in the shade... or maybe he was trying to hide from photographers like you, haha. I like that you didn't capture him smack in the center, here. Everything looks much more interesting off to one side.
I'm glad you like the composition, I wanted to show a bit of the jungle-like environment of the pavillion beside the pigeon itself. I also considered cropping more aggressively to zoom in more on the face, but in the end I didn't want to lose any of the magnificent head feathers. The bird wasn't disturbed or timid in the least, it was just chilling out.
