Mourning Dove

  Quietly waiting
Dove's sharp eye sees all danger
Babies need tending

We have some of those here too - they are big birds and they do watch their babies. sandie

Mickie ~ What a lovely shot. The green background is just makes the shot stunning.

I love the doves in our back yard, but I've never seen a nest.

Hi there - splendid picture - I like the little catch-light highlight in the doves eye.

I think sometimes are bound to be busy, but when it moves to all the time I think we should stop to find out why!

This is probably my very favorite wild bird. They are such peaceful little ones.

Hi, Mickie!
These round eyes symbolize mother's love. But, how tender and peaceful the scenery look with her!
I love this photo.
Have a great week!

I love it when I can get a good shot of a bird in a tree. The lush green surrounding the dove is very nice. As always, love the haiku.

Such a beautiful capture! The lovely dove surrounded by the lush greenery just can't be beat. Stunning lighting, as well. A very peaceful scene.

I never tire of seeing (and hearing) mourning doves -- we didn't used to have them when we lived in Oregon, but our daughter tells me that they've now moved in and she has them in her yard. Good.

They are so sweet! I almost always have several around. Bonnie
