Thank you, Nadine. And I was wrong about shooting this in the morning. I thought the lighting was wrong for morning since I know the location. This was shot at 5:15p.m.

Wonderful wonderful capture Carla. The lighting, timing and dof are all awesome here. I really love this shot. It is a morning Dove and they do feed off the ground most of the time. Every now and then I catch mine on the feeder also and at all times of the day.

Lovely shot Carla, reminds me so much of Molly, a ring neck dove we raised from a nestling a couple of months ago. She was a beautiful bird, and so sweet!
