Heard a bit of a "cooing commotion" outside earlier today. Slide my curtain aside just a little, and saw a couple of Mourning Doves mating. They had this cute little ritual: Preen, Cuddle, Kiss, Mate. They "did it" about a dozen times. :P

I have a blog forthcoming, but here are a couple of shots that I've quickly processed. I had no time to really set up, so I just grabbed my lens (only thing readily available was my 600mm, and they were RIGHT there on the railing of my deck, so apologies for the tight crop...these are all mostly 100% full frames), stuck it to the sill of my sliding glass door to my deck, and started shooting...no real artistic flare here, just a small little documentary of a cute dove couple in cute little dove love. :D













Enjoy!  :-*

Cool owl series Vern!  Like the 3rd and 4th ones the best.

Jrista, really like the last 'cuddle' shot!  Can't wait to see the whole series!
