p.1 #1 · Soaking up the sun


Today I noticed that this mourning dove was sitting and really soaking up some sun! Usually, if I approach this particular bird in my backyard it flies away before I can get within 10 meters, but today it let me get really close. So much so that I was able to swap out bodies and get to MFD with the 500/4 + TC1.4! It was there since 10am, and didn't leave until about 7pm, so I was worried that it was injured, but it was probably resting up for the incoming snow storm!

Can you tell which one was with the 5D2 or 7D?

A nice set Charles. 3 is my pick too, but there seems to be a slight greenish color cast ~ Ron

Love your dove. They don't lay eggs on the ground so no nest. Don

Thanks Roberta! It's nice when the subject doesn't move except to give you good head angles

Thanks Morris! I don't think it's an egg as they don't lay eggs on rocks, and I would think it's too early as well.

Thanks Tam,

It's the first time I've actually been able to photograph it, so I am pleased :-)

Thanks Ron, I think it may be the BG giving it the cast, I'll check out my PP when I get home.
