Adorable retrato de esta paloma, con grandes detalles, lindos colores, buena iluminaciòn, profundidad de la escena y un fondo borroso que destaca al ave. Es una compo muy armònica.

Well it may be a common dove but it is an uncommon photo. I love the simple composition, and all the tans and cream colors complemented with the soft greens. It is just lovely.

What a lovely shot of this morning dove. This presentation has a great air of peacefulness and it is great to see such a shot from you.
I fancy the composition with the frontal shot of the dove, the angle of its perch, and the decorative effect caused by the pine needles. The colours are soft and stunning, the details are very sharp, the BG is brilliant and the OOF colour match compliments the bird very well, and you did great work with the exposure control.
Very well done and TFS.

I like the comp. of pine needles and dove set against a fine BG and the fact that it is sharp and well-lighted makes this an excellent shot.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

It's wonderful, Mike, those warm and beautiful colours and the pose of the dove is very nice, it seems it was cold at this time.
The sharpness is excellent, thanks and greetings

Félicitations, pour cette belle photo.
Très intéressants détails du plumage caractéristique à la Tourterelle. Ses couleurs sont d'un beau naturel. J'aime les épines de pin ainsi que la neige qui cadre bien le côté gauche.. Belle et bonne prise.
Merci et au revoir...JP

This was a truly fabulous capture Mike! Amazing to think that you found her so close to home too -- a good lesson for us all, nature may be as close as your back door (or your friend's backyard in my case :))

This is a good POV and you caught great details on the Dove. I like its pose, environment (they are often seen on wires) and this exposure. Well seen and well done! Thanks,

Hi Mike, lovely composition and nice framing. How lovely to have this sight near your back door. Lovely colours and good sharpess on the Dove and Pine tree. Perfect soft DOF. Great shot.
Ah, Mike, I can see you've been a big a slacker as me! Amazing DOF here, what a great picture of the dove.
TFS (if you ever come back!)

Beautiful soft color palette with just the right splash of green for contrast and context. The dove looks very contented, giving the whole scene a sense of tranquility. Well done.
