For a decade, mourning doves have used a juniper tree in my yard as a nesting location. For the most part, they are successful and I am very careful to follow NestWatch.org protocols. It just so happens I can lean out of my kitchen window and photograph the doves growth. This was a lucky shot – I am an amateur. I don’t own photoshop or anything like that program. I believe in observing nature as it is – not over thinking or over working it, just enjoying the magic and mystery of nature, much of which is right outside our front door (or in my case, my kitchen window).

Spreading My Wings

Two Mourning Doves. One is ready to spread its wings, the other is thinking about it.
