Mourning Dove Study

I've been practising using my brand, new camera with a zoom on it. I was lucky enough to have a lovely Mourning Dove sit and pose for me.

I was taking so long shooting her that she dozed off...

...and puffed up her feathers to keep herself warm. Lovely bird. Fantastic camera. Thanks Richard!!

And good gift choice, Richard!

Those are great shots. What kind of camera are you using? I want to get one with a better zoom for taking bird pics, too. It's funny how mourning doves in your neck of the woods look different than the ones here. Ours aren't quite as buffy (or fluffy) and they have a few spots on them near their neck I believe.

Happy holidays to you, Ronna!

I look forward to many more bird close-ups from you now. Super shot of the dove. We have a weeping birch where a whole gang of them hang out these days.

Love, love the last shot.
Looks like a pissed-off chicky to me... privacy: Please!
