Feathers and Flower Bud

Mourning Dove posing for me on my deck :)

Beautiful, Kerri. Aren't mourning doves just so pretty.. in their own dumb-as-a-post way? Great shot. And that looks like a soon-to-be violet, maybe.

I love it when the Mourning Doves honor my garden and take in the morning light on my deck!

Have a wonderful weekend Kerri!

Fantastic shot of that bud Kerri! I bet it will be a beautiful flower.
You gotta love the Mourning doves. We have SO many and can hear them cooing them all day.

Guess from now on I better use the preview!

What I said was - There is just something about mourning doves. I'm not sure if it is the smoothness of their heads or wings - I just love them!

The close-up of the dove is absolutely outstanding! I'm looking forward to seeing the flower when it blooms - it's already beautiful as it is!

A dove photo is stunning. I couldn't stop looking at it. And a flower bud photo is just great.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Great shot of the dove. I think they are very funny when they walk.

Oh, so lovely. Mourning doves have the most distinctive eyes, don't they? With their blue eyeshadow in a circle, it just looks so pretty.
Raining here, but it's a gentle one. We lucked out yesterday because the forecast called for rain but the sun won out.

Very nice image of the much maligned Mourning Dove. Good for you, Kerri, giving the poor dove some screen time!
