Great close up! It's giving you a wary eye.
I actually think it's fast asleep.
Those guys are the reason I really got into real cameras, for the ones I had just wouldn't reach the 25 or so feet to get all that detail.
Great shot! So close. Is this the mommy or the daddy? You're very nice to let them hang out at your place. I've got some mourning doves eyeing my backyard/patio as a new home and I'm not terribly happy about it. I just know I'm going to find one has died somewhere.
Thanks, I was pleased. I really don't know which of them. Or even if it is the mom or dad, it might be one of the multitude of kids. I expect the birds have realised the dog will keep away anything nasty like cats, so may well be a bit of evolution :-).
I love this! If I could ever find a way to keep the blasted squirrels out of my bird feeders, I would enjoy them much more than I do!
