You were quick to capture this dove before he dropped his wing! You managed a great shot through the window. The colors, details, textures and lighting are all excellent. I like the natural setting - very similar to those in Tucson. In case you aren't around again before Christmas I will take this opportunity to wish you and Loot a very merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.

A fine capture of a Cape Turtle Dove having what might be an ant bath: ie, it allows ants to remove parasites among its feathers. Though I can't see any ants, it seems to a be a type of behaviour common to many birds on a hot day. I have seen blackbirds doing this in my country during the summer. I doubt that it it is trying to warm itself by doing this.
Whatever, it is a fine and interesting capture, both technically and estheically and the raised wing makes a nice gesture to symbolise Christmas greetings.
I warmly reciprocate both to you and Loot and my best wishes for 2010 to you both.

Thank you for your warm wishes and for the beautiful Dove that's waving its wing to us! Lovely colours and sharp details too. It looks very cosy there in the warm sunshine; I feel quite envious as here it is cold and stormy weather with more snow is forecast.
I wish you and Loot a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year too. Kind regards, Ulla

Thanks dear friend for your contribution to my theme.
This animal obviously had enjoyed a mud bath before the sunbathing ( to protect from sunburn? :-))
Many times I have seen one in my back garden in just that position and thought it was dead... I approached the "body", and it flew away :-) this broken wing position seems to be very popular.
Thanks for sharing,
