[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Kumru, The Eurasian Collared Dove, Streptopelia decaocto, also called simply the Collared Dove, is one of the great colonisers of the avian world. Its original range was warmer temperate regions from southeastern Europe to Japan. However, in the twentieth century it expanded across the rest of Europe, reaching as far west as Great Britain by 1953, and Ireland soon after. It also now breeds north of the Arctic Circle in Scandinavia. It is not migratory.

It's a good photo, the subjectis well divided from the background. I would have appreciated a bit more ambientation, but it's my idea.

It's a pity that the tail is overexposed, but it's a known issue of the S2IS. Try photographing with a 2/3 - 1 stop underexposure, you will notice an improvement. Myself, I get best results with manual mode, but I understand it's not always the best way to go (expecially for high contrast areas).

In Italian it's called "Tortora dal collare".
