I love their name. If i have a daughter, I'm gonna name her Inca. :)

There were taken at Hornsby Bend. Saw a couple of them feeding on the ground near the entrance of the green house. I had to move very slooooowly and lay flat on my tummy, pretending to be a log. :lol:
I was thinking about cropping out the foreground but decided to leave them uncropped because it shows the narrow DoF more clearly. Hope you like them. Thanks for looking.

I have heard of these, but never seen one before your captures Fee. What a fascinating "scaled" appearance they have. I agree w/your decision to leave the foreground in as it does add help bring the eye more quickly to what the main focus of the image is. Very nicely accomplished....on your tummy - :)
And I agree, Inca would make a beautiful name for a young lady.

Lovely shots Fee. Worth a bit of discomfort (crawling) to get them.

Good decision to leave the foreground in, Fee. These are wonderful. The bird reminds me a bit of a mourning dove.

That low angle makes for great shots... beautiful bird and the natural detail is exceptional.

Thanks Steve. Yeah, the scaled plumage really provides some details. They are my favorite dove to photograph so far. :)

Good shots, Fee. I would have mistaken one for a common dove. Please re-think your daughter's name though.:lol:
