Mourning Dove - Closeup


I have always enjoyed Mourning Doves. I first heard them calling when I was about 6 on our Idaho farm. I thought it was an owl making the who-hoo-hoo noise and was surprised to see it was a dove. I later found their stick nests with two white eggs and watched the babies grow up and fly. This dove landed close enough to my truck here in Nevada, that I was able to get this photo using a long lens and a window mount.

Canon 5D and 500mm lens.
