I forgot I'd taken a picture, albeit a shiitake one. I was walking around Phnom Penh a couple of weeks ago and voilĂ ! Special needs pigeons. No sex, just comfortably sitting on top of the other with neither expressing any complaint. Thoughts? Captions?

The last time I was in that city, I witnessed flies having sex (there's a pic somewhere of that, too).

I saw so many fornicating flies in Phnom Penh too. Move over Paris, we have a new city for romance.

I don't know, but it's cute, whatever it is.

That's really cute. Maybe the top guy saw an ant and got scared.

I think it's sort of a bird dominance thing. I used to work in a nature-center-type-place, and we had a couple doves who would do this, and it was always the dominant one who sat on the other. It's pretty cute!

I don't know why they're doing that, but it's silly and I like it.

Bird behaviour seldom makes sense.

Molly would probably sit on the macaw if he would let her. She tries to squash herself up under his wing sometimes.

But, yeah. Birds are weird. All of them.

I do rather like the idea of post-coital pigeon cuddling. Also, I'm a little happier now that I know someone else witnessed sexflies in PP too. For anyone who'd like to see, check it out.

Obviously the top pigeon's feet hurt and the bottom one is giving him a ride.
