1/1000 seconds..I dont think these can be that fast. I think you were chasing after some birds. There is a little burst on dorsum, but the details are still perceivable. In latin names we get 'scorpioides' in two cases:
a) if you get pincer like upturned appendages
b) if you get a stinger like long tail. I think in this case the latter is correct
All details about the image is great,except for the ID. It is exactly a laughing dove (Stigmatopelia senegalensis). The species you mentined is American only. I wondered what reference led you to the ID?
I cant believe this particular photo couldnt get any points. Maybe its about your timing, but this is ridiculous. Wonderful capture.
Despite you remark i couldnt see it neither in Turkey nor Belgium. Maybe it is due to the fact that brain sees not the eyes
I agree with Sandu, they are known for this type of dimorphism. This is nature and sexual selection rules! The smaller the male is the more its adaptable for the sake of next generations

This is spiny lizard (genus Sceloporus) in the family Phrynosomatidae. But cant recognize the species. Great capture.
Definitely not an Accipiter hawk, but a Buteo. A good one,
I think another adjustment needing photo. Great capture with subtle sharpness and focus.
Gorgeous, one of the best shots of the species i have ever seen. Good one,
Amazing shot of this Asian bird.
