  2. The irridescence in those neck feathers is amazing, Bob. Stock Doves cause a lot of problems for nesting owls, but I will forgive them because of those feathers! ;-} . Have a great week ahead, and take good care - - - - Richard

  16. Hi Bob,
    They are such a pretty bird with the iridescent feathering, not a bird I have ever thought of getting an image from.
    Will try next time.

    1. It's a pretty bird John, they don't like us very much, so I was hiding.

  17. Ohhh, nice! We have doves that fly over our garden and land in the walnut tree. It's a treat to see a close-up. Thank you, Bob!

  20. These photos are fabulous! And the stick gives it a bit of natural environment! Shadows and color.
