While I was having my morning cup of coffee one day this past week,
I saw two mourning doves land on the wires leading into our house.
I grabbed my camera,
and didn't have any idea what a show they were going to put on for me!
All these photos were taken in sequence...
although in reality I took nearly a hundred photos!
I've tried to pick out a few of the best.
|They sat so close together...|
|All their movements seemed to be in sync...|
|...They moved through their grooming rituals...|
|They started at the front, and progressed to the back...|
|...sometimes their heads were not even visible...|
|...Occasionally they stopped their simultaneous routine...|
|...to groom each other!|
|They snuggled close at times.|
No wonder they are called "love birds",
and are often used in wedding ceremonies!
|After "snuggling", they would return to grooming themselves again.|
|This is the last photo I took of them together before they flew away.|
How wonderful a God we have!
I love it when He reveals to me His glory and beauty in nature,
and I'm glad I could share some of it with YOU!
Last year around this time I did a post on a different type of doves.
