[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot yesterday, this Mourning Dove (Zenaida macroura) was sun bathing in the front yard, basking under the late afternoon soon.

The number of individual Mourning Doves is estimated to be approximately 475 million. Yes, they are everywhere.

Hi Everton,

A nice capture of this mourning dove,maybe a bit lower POV would have benefitted the composition,but colors and sharpness are looking good,tfs


hello Everton

beautiful close-up photography of the Mourning Dove,
shot with fine POV, DOF and framing, beautiful luminosity,
excellent sharpness and details, and the catch-light
that render the photo always more beautiful, TFS
