Thanks Dan...I personally liked the first image a lot. Around here these doves are very skittish so I was happy that I got one sitting long enough on a branch for a couple of shots- even though the background is busy.I really appreciate simple, well done shots of common subjects. Nicely done.
Thanks Jim...they were perched in the thick of Red Pine trees.These are well done. I agree that the background is a bit busy but it gives a good idea of the environment.
Thanks Randy. I liked number 1 myself. The crazy swirling lights are the effects of some sun shining through the pine needles.#1 is a beauty with great feather detail. Mourning doves are always on my list. When I go to Texas I shoot 3 or 4 types of doves, all beauties. I like the BGs with the crazy swirling lights
Thanks. The pf is a lens I enjoy very much. To give you an idea of it's sharpness, these were shot through my winter dirty family room window.Beauties! We have some coming back for spring time in N. Va. Haunting coo's always a memory of childhood. Well shot. Looks like another good reason to get on the list for the 500 pf
