Doves always seem to be at peace with the world.

.... I wonder why it has that name? It sounds a little sad ...but it is 'adorable' was my first thought

Wonderful that you've captured the dove collecting nesting materials!

As always, amazing! I like the lighting and the nesting material. It's a working bird.

Stunning photos of the dove. It was a cooperative model. Nice composition and lighting, too.

He is a beauty and seems to be modeling for you as he turns different ways on the fence.

Awesome shots..and so much prettier than Gollum! LOL!

Marie said...

Wonderful "on the fence" shots, Brian. I wonder if she is headed to a nest they are building for little ones.

Gail Dixon said...

Awww, so sweet. I love when I can catch a bird gathering nesting material. These are great!

Rose said...

Oh my goodness! These are wonderful. Doves are just so beautiful in their quiet way.

Linda said...

Great shot!
The funny part is....that is probably the entire nest!
May I ask....why no comment if there is word verification?
I see you are following my blog...but no comments...
Would love to hear what you have to say about my photos.....
Cheers!
Linda :o)

There is so much feeling in these pictures, especially with the way you named it. I do love the doves more than most birds probably because they have come to stand for peace, which is an important issue for me. Wonderful Photogaphy, Brian.
