A very nice shot of this beautiful dove i am seeing for the first time. Its name, Zebra dove, is well justified by the black stripes over its body. Beautiful tinge of light turquoise on the beak and around the eye. Nice frontal POV and a lovely BG. A little more space below the frame would have added more charm to this shot. Thanks for sharing,
Doves and pigeons have always been a favorite bird of mine since I was a young boy. This is definitely a beautiful bird with it's sleek body and grizzled looking plumage. Great eye contact with a pretty light green eye ring!
This particular specimen actually reminds me of some of the doves I saw down in Nicaragua this year. Beautiful colors and nicely focused. I like the clean and blurred BG.
Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to see what a tad more contrast would do in a WS.
