Mourning Doves in Love

I hadn’t planned on posting today. But as I was outside this morning messing with my new camera, I came across an incredible sight: two mourning doves loving each other. The pair were perched in a tree at the far end of the yard and spent several minutes bonding: preening one another, cuddling, biting, and even kissing. They absolutely stole my heart, and I felt these images were too good not to share.

I hope you’re all enjoying the holidays (or at least making the best of them).

    1. Thank you! I’m happy you like the photos. There’s a flock of about 12-20 doves that have been coming to the feeder everyday for months, and now that the trees are bare I can see them all lined up on the branches in that corner of the yard. They seem to hang out up there quite a bit. These two were precious this morning, and they do have a beautiful, soothing call.
