The columbine is just gorgeous! Sweet photos of the morning doves too. I didn't know they had pink feathers.

David Gascoigne said...

How beautiful is a Mourning Dove huh? And the Government of Ontario just permitted hunting of them. Disgusting! I know that you just left a comment on my blog, Karen and I inadvertently deleted it. Maybe you can do it again. Sorry!

Rambling Woods said...

Thank you for highlighting the gentle doves. I do love them and they have their own special kind of beauty. Please stay cool as this has been a real hot streak... Michelle

Gail Dixon said...

MitchyLR said...

Adam Jones said...

Such a pretty looking dove. Wonderful

Richard Pegler said...

That Pink Columbine image is gorgeous, Karen, and I love that beautiful sheen on the necks of the Mourning Doves.

Congratulations on your impeccably clean feeding tray!

Findlay Wilde said...

They a really nice looking Doves, a little bit like our Turtle Doves. From Findlay

Gunilla Bäck said...

Gorgeous columbines! The doves are very cute too.

Phil Slade said...

I never realised Mourning Doves had a blotch of pink like that. It shows up so well in your photos. Funny how other doves have similar colourful but not pink markings - our Stock Dove and Turtle Dove spring to mind.

mick said...

What a lovely idea to hi-light the pink flowers and the pink in the Doves. I don't think our doves out here have that color in them but I must have another look at them.

Robert Nicolaescu said...

Beautiful post.

kmilyun said...

As always beautiful! I have never seen doves with that shade of pink around here. Maybe I just was not observant enough. Keep the great shots coming!!

Frank said...

A fabulous pink presentation Karen. I just love that Aquilegia.

Pat said...

Beautiful shots of the Mourning Doves. YOur photos show such detail.

Kalantikan said...

I love the unusual color combination in that flower, very beautiful! I never new birds have subtle pinks too.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

How beautiful the flower and "matching" doves are. Lovely touch of pink on them shows up so beautifully.

Felicia said...

Oh Wow Karen the dove pics are gorgeous. love the little pink spot on them.

Shey Wicklund said...

Arija said...

That is the first time I have seen the pink on the mourning dove necks. thank you of that.

Mary Cromer said...

I just love Mourning Doves. My sister raised and owned 2 over the years and they were just delightful. I love their sweet nature and that they mate for life~

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous images!

Cosette Paneque said...

Great pictures. Morning Doves are so common that I think most people take them for granted, but they are such gentle-looking and pretty birds.

Connie Smiley said...

What a gorgeous columbine!

Wally Jones said...

It's easy to overlook the Mourning Dove as birding or photographic subject as they are so common.
But when we stop to really look at them, as you have done, we realize how truly gorgeous they are!

Thank you.

Love that little pink patch in the neck - this was another of the birds I saw for first time was I was in Arizona earlier this year.

Sorry for slow reply - hectic weeks!
