We’ve had lots of Mourning Doves in the yard lately, sometimes ten or twelve at a time. Doves startle and fly away very easily, so I’ve missed some opportunities to photograph them.

Today there were two doves sitting on the fence and they sat still long enough for photos. This one looked like it was taking a nap.


The other one noticed me and the camera, but didn’t fly off.



This looks like the saddest dove in the world.
