Dear friends,

"May the road rises meeting your way
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
Let the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again,
God keep you on the palm of his hand.
And the Lord bless you with all his goodness,during all the New Year."
Happy New Year!
Big hug from,

This pic was taken some days ago in my garden.This little dove is the youngest member of a family that nest in my garden in early summer.It is very tame and I could get close to photograph it.

"Ruddy Ground Doves are small short-tailed pigeons, 17 cm long with a weight normally about 47 g. Adult males have a pale grey head and neck, and rich rufous upperparts, black-spotted on the wing coverts. The underparts are paler brown, the tail is edged black, and the underwings are cinnamon and black. The female is grey-brown rather than rufous, and has less contrast between head and body than the male."Wikipedia

Hi Ana.
Nice picture, nice note and fine contribution here in 2011. My nest wishes to you in coming New Year.

You managed to picture a charming creature. Its colouration and other details are very attractive as well as natural surroundings. I think you had a light back-focus but it is not a point at all. Head of the bird is in focus and details perfectly. My kind regards and TFS.

Bonjour Ana,
Un oiseau tout en douceur dans ton jardin. Et il n'avait pas l'air effrayé. Ce petit pigeon au plumage brun est vraiment adorable, ta photo est bien prise aussi.
Un grand merci aussi de ton courriel. J'y répondrai plus tard quand je me sentirai rétablie totalement.
Je te souhaite en tous cas que le meilleur pour 2012.

Hello Ana,
Beautiful bird captured in a good composition with nice colours.
I wish you a Happy New Year!
Best Regards,

Bonjour chère amie Ana

À toi aussi une Bonne Année 2012

Une très belle photo en close de cette tourterelle,
excellent POV à son niveau avec un excellent
focus sur l'oeil de l'oiseau, TFS


Buen formato, encuadre y color. Luz algo justa.
Esa preciosa especie no la conozco ni creo que tengamos por aquí.
Saludos Ana: J. Ignasi.
