Crested Pigeon courtship - Ocyphaps lophotes
The Crested Pigeon, Ocyphaps lophotes (Columbiformes - Columbidae) is a relatively large, stocky pigeon with a highly distinctive appearance. As its name suggests, this species is easily recognized by its long, black, pointed crest, which is usually held erect. Ocyphaps lophotes is a species endemic to Australia.
During the breeding season, the male crested pigeon performs a display flight and courts the female with a ‘bowing’ display as seen in the photo.

All Pokemon drawn to scale
Not only is this a labor of love, it’s a labor of science!
Every single Pokemon has been compiled by DOTBStudios as their actual measurements. Some of these are pretty surprising. I always imagined mainstays like Charizard, Dragonite, and Metagross to be much larger than they actually are.
Also whatever you do stay away from Wailord. [❤]Preorder: Pokemon X and Y Pokedex, 20 pc Pokemon set
wailord is bigger than the god of pokemon himself hahahaha
