For the Birds

The man in this photograph introduced himself as "Tweety" to Your Shot photographer Adam Schluter, explaining that he's cared for the pigeons on this block of Coney Island, New York, for 50 years. "I asked him to stand up for a picture," says Schluter. "When he did, they all swirled around him for the perfect photograph." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
