Yesterday I posted a photo of a Northern Mockingbird Looking Up. Today’s photo is of a Mourning Dove that I also photographed in my yard here in Arkansas. These birds nest in my pines every year.
How I Got The Shot – Mourning Dove Walking Under Pine Tree
This bird was foraging on the ground near my bird feeder. I was sitting in a pop-up blind near the feeder with a Canon EOS-1D Mark III camera and a Canon EF 500 mm f/4L IS lens. I had the camera and lens on a tripod.
