Mourning Doves

Came across this couple in a dead, vine covered tree. They were a bit wary but not so much as to fly off as I shot.

The Doves are nicely lit , Chris, and you have caught that nice soft chest color, I like the scaled feather details on both. Would usually like more of the eyes. They certainly look like they are studying you very closely.

A nice looking pair of Mourning Doves, Chris. Details look very good.

A nice family portrait you’ve captured here Chris. I like that one is standing and the other sitting. Lighting was uniform too. Not a great background but the only part that’s really bothersome is that dark branch which catches my attention. Unsure if cloning it would work or not, so sometimes we must accept what we’re given :wink:.
