[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Spotted Dove (Spilopelia chinensis) is a small and somewhat long-tailed pigeon which is a common resident breeding bird across its native range on the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. The species has been introduced into many parts of the world and feral populations have become established. This species was formerly included in the genus Streptopelia with other turtle-doves, but studies suggest that they differ from typical members of that genus. This dove is long tailed buff brown with a white-spotted black collar patch on the back and sides of the neck. The tail tips are white and the wing coverts have light buff spots. There is considerable plumage variations across populations within its wide range. The species is found in light forests and gardens as well as in urban areas. They fly off from the ground with an explosive flutter and will sometimes glide down to a perch.

What an excellent capture of this lovely spotted dove!
Very good POV, gorgeous lighting, superb composition, and splendid natural colors. I love to see its sharp, bright eye. Very well done, my friend. Thanks and have a nice evening!

Hello Foozi,

You're capturing well this bird by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Spotted Dove with brown body, long tail and white-spotted black collar patch on the back. You have caught a good posture which this bird is stoppong on twig. And, it's good color contrast with blue sky.

Kind regards,

Hi Foozi,
Beautiful in its simplicity, pleasant composition, fantastic lights and sharpness. The eye contact is also a great plus, and I especially love the color contrast between the dove and the sky. A great example that even a very simple photo my work very well. Bravo.
