    Beautiful pictures Steve :) Your dog must be very well behaved, mine would have tried to play with it!

    Wonderful series of a little mourning dove, I’ve never seen one. Love the feathers around it’s face. I’m afraid our Siberian Husky would have not been so kind, nothing enters our yard without her permission.

    If my cat discovered your dove, I would now have a little pile of those beautiful feathers. Tell us again what your camera is? Settings?

    Judith, I used 2 different cameras on the above photos. The first 2 are with a Canon EOS-1D Mark III and the last photo was taken with a Canon s95 pocket camera. I was also using a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS lens on the first two.

    Great series…. and I agree your dog is very well behaved. One of my labs would have picked the baby up and brought it to me, or tried to get it to fly so he could chase it… the other would have watched with glee waiting for the chase…

    These are lovely soft little birds, adult or baby – such great markings… wonderful shots Steve… such detail!

    My dog Rosie, does try and chase my rabbits and squirrels but I am trying to get her not to chase the rabbits. The squirrels she can chase from the bird feeders. I have had several baby birds in my yard and she just watches them which is a good thing.
