Lovey Dovey




She was alone last week when I took this
photo, but has since begun dating a handsome fellow.
I mean, I knew it wouldn't take long!
Who could resist her cute little pink feet,
fluffy grey petticoats and that powder blue eye shadow?

  2. She certainly does a wonderful job of blending in to the surroundings... soft greys. I am glad some fella snapped her up!

    2. Wouldn't that be fun? I'll have to keep an eye on her and see where she flies off to!

  4. Love your comment about her "eye shadow". I watch a number of bird cams sponsored by Cornell U. Just the other day someone in their lab tweeted that the albatrosses' shadow was from House of 'Tross. So glad there are still people who can make us smile. I'm also envious. The doves in my neighborhood aren't nearly as beautiful as your lady. You have such a talent for photography. You could make a career of it. Lynne in NC

    1. Thanks, Lynne! I appreciate that a lot! I sure am having fun with this hobby and am getting more comfortable with my new camera.

      I think blue eye shadow every time I see one of these mourning doves, especially if they close their eyes!

      Aren't those cams fun? I haven't watched one in a while, but was quite addicted to an owl family for about a month a few years ago. Very fun!

  5. What a gorgeous picture! I've never seen such detail.

    We have doves that live in and around our garden . . . I love the coo coo, coo coo . . . sound they make while I'm out weeding under the trees. So peaceful . . . maybe that's partly why doves are a symbol of peace?

    1. They are beautiful, aren't they? But they are a bit dense as far as birds go....they don't sense danger like the others! All the birds will scatter when a hawk or cat are close by and the doves stay and look around as if to say, "What's going on?" lol....

    1. Maybe it was this photo....do you think she posted it on all the dating websites? :)

    2. Well I think she might have - after all she wouldn't want an opportunity to fly her by or anyone to 'give her the bird' hahah

      Delete
    3. give her the bird? oh my...she's such a delicate thing! That would surely ruffle her feathers! ha.

    4. Oh gawd here we go! LOL
      Then she would put her foot down and clop his wings!

    5. well, let's give him a break.
      Maybe he was hen pecked in his last relationship. ha.

    6. Are you sure you want to start this tonight?
      It's so late there, you'll feel like a bird brain in the morning!
      lol....

    7. I feel like bird brain every morning! LOL
      And we are all hen-pecked in our last/existing relationships! hahaha
      Perhaps he's gone to 'feather his nest!
      or build her a Dovecot hoping she will call to him
      "Cooey!"

    1. Yeah, his voice has to make her heart go flip flop
      and maybe even briefly stop.
      Wonder if he had a foreign accent
      when a date he came to her asking.
      haha.
