  20. 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!

  28. Gorgeous columbines! The doves are very cute too.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 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!!

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

  48. your columbine looks really fresh and healthy. So lovely :)

  49. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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.

    Sorry for slow reply - hectic weeks!
