They say springtime is imminent....

Brenda (drchoneydew) kindly provided the following information: Mourning doves pair in the spring. After the male chooses a nesting site, the pair spends three to four days building a nest from twigs and sometimes grass. It might be on the ground or up to 20 feet up in a tree. The female lays two white eggs, which both parents incubate. Both care for the young until they leave the nest at 11 to 15 days of age. A pair may raise two families in a single summer.

UPDATE 2011-11-14: I should have added from the beginning that the image was softened, and not sharpened, for a change as I thought it would better suit the mood of the picture. Have now placed the original image in the workshop.

Ciao Neels, lovely couple of lovers in nice pose, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hallo Neels
A great image with lots of love and affection that can be sensed by just looking at it. What a special moment you captured. I like the point of view and the composition is also very pleasant. The clear blue sky as backdrop brings out the details to the best. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

LOVE how you caught this moment of affection. I read somewhere they mate for life!

Glad you decided to soften the image.

Hi Neels,

Have a nice week,

Hi Neels,
No, I haven't heard ;-)
I liked a lot the scene you got here, certainly it seems a moment of confidence between those doves.
You've managed to build a nice composition with the branches and leafs at the down-right part of the frame.
I just had a look at the workshop, and found on it still plenty of details that would be great to keep. Not sure if the hot pixels there were because of too much sharpening, but something in between will just work fine.
Well done and thanks for share it.
Best regards,
JM

Hello Neels.
What a lovely pair of this Mourning doves you captured here with nice color and composition, thanks for sharing.Best regards Siggi

Hi Neels,

The branches are helping to frame the birds. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Mourning doves. The afternoon light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
