I took this shot a couple of weeks ago on a really overcast day when this Lorikeet was in our garden with her baby, and going to great pains to feed it. When much to my surprise this Turtle dove landed on the dead branch beside them. But as you can see she was really scared. Another slight move away from the Lorikeets would have had it falling from its perch. The Lorikeets always chase off the Turtle Doves from our feeders.

Lovely shot, and a real story suggested here. Nice touch of sharp and blur to gain effect too.

That picture makes me laugh hehe. The only thing i think could be better is a different color for the border. Its a little gloomy. Just my two cents

Thank you Alady. As much as we love having our Lorikeets, Galahs and Cockatoos in our garden, we do miss having all the small birds that we had in our previous home. Silver Eyes and New Holland Honey Eaters can be heaps of fun to watch.

We do have a few Sparrows in our garden but that's it, so I make the most of the photographic opportunities that the larger birds provide.

Thank you Normcar for the very kind words. I can't remember whatI did with this image apart from cropping it and using the USM. Because of the drab background sky I was in two minds whether to upload it.

Thanks DannyO. I will have a look at it with brighter frame. I'm always open to helpful advice. I'm still playing around with frames.

This is one of those images which deserves a caption. The dove is thinking "Are they talking about me?" Glad you decided to put it on.
