This Dove came to the feeder on a snowy morning with a tiny bit of sun. Their subtle beauty often becomes more visible to me in close-up shots. There are so many colours and patterns to discover, and it all is one beautiful composition. The bird looked so serene and content but also somewhat distant in this photo that it reminded me of the Mona Lisa 🙂

Exceptional background for a lovely dove.
The shade of “blue” around Lisa’s eyes is simply spectacular! Only Mother Nature could be responsible for that color!!!
Thank you all!

Mourning doves have a special place in my heart as they kept my father company in his final days nesting within a foot of his window. They would peer in just like this photo. I wS never able to capture a photo of them that did them justice. This photo is exquisite and does highlight their understated beauty! Thank you!
What a lovely photo, love those Morning Doves.
Beautiful shot. She looks well fed.
What kind of camera was used for this photo?
A sentimentally soothing bird. Captured beautifully in this photo.
