Day 113: Mourning Dove

113/365: Mourning Dove
Walked out my front door to talk to my mother on my cell phone when out of the corner of my eye I found a pair of mourning doves nesting in the front yard. I didn't realize they have a blue outline around the eye until I zoomed in with my lens. I like having doves around the house, as they are the symbol of peace - something this world is desperately lacking.

Wonderful photo! We also have mourning doves in our yard, they can get quite vocal!

About a month ago, I had some morning doves who would come and sit in my window box, I tried my hardest to get a picture, but every time I got close enough they flew away!

Thank you ladies! I was quite surprised that these doves were so calm and let me snap almost 100 photos.
