This dove sat motionless on her nest as I approached her…she didn’t seem nervous at all.  She must have known I’m a mama too!  🙂

    She knows what you don’t! If she doesn’t move -YOU can’t see her so this must be a made up shot, cause she ain’t moving.

    She’s beautiful Tammy.

    • Great image with lots of detail. Doves used to build nests in the hanging ferns on our deck until we decided to not put out any more ferns. The Mama Dove would just look at us and not be bothered by us at all, but we got so nervous about the babies leaving the nest and running into one of our dogs.

    She is just beautiful Tammy.
    For whatever reason, these birds are my favorites.
    Such peaceful little ones.

    Super sharp focus on the eye! (That’s the part Jon says is the most important in a bird photo). Great detail in this picture.

    So still….with just a touch of watchful wariness in her eye.
