Sitting in the Winter Sun

The Mourning Dove is a regular visitor to the feeders in the back yard.  This one was trying to get some rays on the deck outside the kitchen sliders.   I love the soft grey browns in their colourations.

I just adjusted the levels and added soft light for more punch.   I am joining Chelsey at Paper Heart Camera for Touch Up Tuesday.    Have a great day.  Valerie

Hi valerie,

Thats a very cool shot. I guess your Camera must have very good zoom, coz I tried to take one close up shot like this but couldn't.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hi Val
Looks like he's keeping his back side warm with heat from the bricks.
