WHY do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?
That was the question being pondered by amateur photographer Sandra Murphy when she caught these two lovebirds in a picture-perfect pose.
The keen-eyed 70-year-old, a member of South Shields Photographic Society, didn’t even have to leave her home to snap this eye-catching exhibit.
Sandra, of Wentworth, South Shields, had time to pick up her camera and capture a romantic slice of life as the two pigeons puckered up.
She said: “I was very surprised that the picture turned out as it did.
“I saw the two birds so happy with one another and thought it would make for a lovely picture, but I thought when I went to grab my camera, they would have flown away by the time I got back.
“I will be taking the pictures along to the next meeting of the photographic group at St Michael’s Church.”
