This mourning dove seems to be pleading with me…he doesn’t like a chilled bath…I think he would prefer a hot tub!

    So marvellous!

  2. Cathy Says:

    Wow, so close and sharp. He most certainly looks like he would prefer a hot tub 🙂

  3. PC PHOTO Says:

    Poor thing, you need to get one of those birdbath heaters, next best thing to a hot tub.

  4. bonniegunkel Says:

    OMG I love fat birdies!!! This is an awesome capture Tammy!

  5. Steve Says:

    Love the way he is hunching his neck to keep warm….great shot

    He is probably saying that In order for him to take part in the polar plunge you will need to break the ice first.

    If the Romans could have Underfloor heating two thousand years ago, It says little for the technology of Omaha that a bird bath can’t be centrally heated, If you go ahead with the project make it BIGGER cause even the Turkey Buzzards will come for that! LoL

    This is just the sweetest picture…love all the detail in the feathers and that little eye looking right at you…..does look like he’s trying to get his message across!

  9. Bobbie Says:

    It also looks like it was not a bad season, given that he could use a bit of time on the treadmill before hitting the hot tub. Love his baleful eye and the crisp derail on the feathers.

  10. I agree with Bobbie….maybe a short flapout would get him in condition!

  11. Kala Says:

    Wonderful composition and details.

  12. jackscrap Says:

    He’s peeved because he left his ice-skates at home and just didn’t have the energy to get airborne again.

  13. MikeC366 Says:

    You’ve really managed to catch the eye sharp and nice. Would have liked more of a catch light though. Pin sharp and focussed though.

  14. Kathryn Says:

    Very nice detail.

  15. Love love it 🙂 He is a big guy ! 🙂

  16. Ellen Says:

    It seems expectant, this is wonderful. Feathers are amazing things and surely are doing the job here.

  17. Lisa Says:

    Fantastic shot, this will be one of my favourites for this year.

  18. lisa Says:

    Can’t blame him for that!
    He is adorable Tammy.

  19. Great close-up. Very sharp and revealing details.

    You mean you DON”T warm your bird-bath water?? poor little thing looks like he should have his skates on instead of anticipating a bath. Lovely detail in this and well focused
