Mama Dove and chicks
Long time no see, Everyone. It has been way too long since I last posted. This Mama Morning Dove and chicks are perched atop our halogen light right outside our back door. Needless to say we won't be turning on our lamp for awhileBig Grin

Hey Philip! Great capture and thanks for sharing.

The eyes have it for me - they look so cute...

Did you take them into your studio or something? How did you get the background all white?
Most of the time the mama is on top of the chicks or only one has its head poking out. When I took this shot, both heads were out and they were at a convenient angle to where I could take the picture with the back wall of our house as a background. Thanks for commenting.
A few days older and plumper now.

Great lighting in both these shots Phlip. Was it natural or are you bouncing a flash off something?
The mother seems very comfortable with you being close to them with a camera.

Thanks, Kombi.... Just natural light on both.

Very cool to see them growing like this. I l=know my kids would be fascinated to see them if they were at our place.
Canon stuff.
These are so lovely, Phlip you caught so beautifully, I loved them so much.

Thank you,
with my love,
