Beautiful colors and crispness, Bill. Just one small nitpick ... this bird is actually a "mourning" dove. It is named after its plaintive call. So many people think its name refers to the time of day that I once took a photo of one sitting on a tombstone and hardly anyone saw the significance ;) #1691982

Mary K. Robison July 09, 2006

Bill, I could spend all afternoon commenting on just your bird photos ("skipping" the amazing macros of flies and such).
Since everyone has covered the gift you have for capturing synchronized geese in flight, I chose this equally beautiful image of a bird at rest.
The composition and lovely colors overall are so pleasing, and the capture of that intimate look over its shoulder shows again what brilliant timing you have.
I feel honored that you took time to comment on my duck photo. Thank you! #3004455

Bill Wyatt July 18, 2006

The late or early lighting cast wonderful hues across this image and give the dove a beautiful colors. Congratulations, Bill! #3043834

Michael Kelly level-deluxe September 22, 2008

Bill, I never tire of looking at your gallery. All beautiful shots. This one struck me because I can not get a good shot of these doves which inhabit our yard in great numbers. Their colors are so plain that my shots of them are just dull. This one makes the bird beautiful as well as being a great photo in every sense of the word. Love it.
