SKYWATCH FRIDAY SEASON 4 EPISODE 34

And there my little doves did sit

With feathers softly brown

And glittering eyes that showed their right

To general Nature's deep delight.

It is such a good shot of the dove - so clear. I love his expression.

Nice comforting shot of the mourning dove. The hawk flew past my window today and scared the daylights out of the starlings who were eating here and also scared the squirrel.

Kathy said...

I love how you captured this dove looking slightly back over his shoulder.

Lorac said...

He is a lovely boy, with feathers softly brown, although, I think he is giving you the eye! Nice capture of a feathered friend!
