I was patiently waiting for some Chipping sparrows to come in but saw a pair of Mourning Doves first. As soon as they noticed my camera was pointing at them, they took off. :)

Resized for web, pp'ed, uncropped.

Taken with Bigma and 10mm extension tubes, f8, ISO400, no flash

Great shots Fee. These guys are hard to shoot. Looks good with that tube on there too. Haven't used mine yet, other than to make sure it will fit and work. ;)

Very nice. You've captured the true character of a Mourning Dove. Well done.

Thanks for the comment Mitch, Reyno, Shirley, Trevor, Terry.
The pair got a little too close after they landed. Good thing the Bigma is a zoom :). There were taken at 363mm.

Thanks for looking and commenting Keith, Sindri, Stephen.
I have to admit i'm not a fan of the dove either. They take away a lot of Inca dove's habitat from what i heard, but i guess that's part of nature. :)

I normally don't pay much attention to dove's, maybe I will have to change my thought on them. Very nice capture on these.

I appreciate the comment Zip, John.
Before this, i didn't have any photo of any type of dove even though they are everywhere. After capturing this fella, now i think i'm going to get more dove species into my collection. :)

For the past two years this mourning dove has made her nest on a bookshelf sitting just outside of my friends front door on a covered patio where my friend has a few plants.
The dove has raised two broods there and will not leave her nest even if someone stands two feet away looking at her.
