Cropped and resized. Auto level adj.

P.S. We have the Eurasian Collored Dove ( Ringneck), Inca Dove and this one that comes to the feeders, on the ground only.

All comments and critique to improve these are appreciated.

Donna, that is a beautiful photo. I may be wrong, but from my book that closely resembles the Zenaida Dove, which is rarely seen north of the Florida keys.

Very nice capture and setting. Appreciate your viewing and response.

Nice pictures Bayourebel. I have 4 doves that come to my feeders. If I'm not mistaken they look like the first one.

Thanks, Emmanuel. The Mourning Dove is common in almost all of North America and Canada, according to my book, Birds of North America.

Thanks for viewing.

Nice photos. I used to have a pair of doves that nested on my balcony every year. I think the male died last year. The female returned briefly this year then disappeared. I haven't seen the male in about 1.5 years, and it's been 4 or 5 months since I've seen the female. I miss them.

Nice bird shots, Bayourebel!It would have been interesting to see those doves on the groundshot from the very same level, ie the ground. It will probably givea nice, cleanout-of-focus background (assuming a small aperture value, use program A or scenery program Portrait or Sports). The FZ30 is wellprepared for such photo taking(compared to a DSLR) with its flip-down LCD-screen.

PeHa - good suggestion. I have recently been trying to break out of the habit of taking pics from the same ol' eye-level angle. It's amazing what just a little change in angle can do to improve a photo.
Of course, the older we get, the harder it is to get up from the ground after getting those good angles. :G

Jerry - I've seen several Ringneck doves in my yard (big ol' suckers!), and there are always Mourning doves in the trees and on the power lines near the house. I would get dozens of them when I had feeders. When I'd step out the back door, they'd fly off making all that noise they tend to make and scare the you-know-what out of me!
Still, I'm surprised at that Inca dove. I've lived here all my life and have never seen one of those. I guess I might have to put the feeder back up and keep an eye out for one.
