About This Image

I had been busy and did not get out to check up on the new baby Dove for a few days. When I finally made it out to the nest the babies had grown like crazy. One baby was under mom and the other out front. No matter how close I got she was not about to move.

Thanks Alex... Yea I went out there yesterday and they were all gone. I can't believe how fast they grow.

Hi Carol and Ann :) Thanks very much for dropping by and for your nice comments.. She sure was a great mom. I did not dare getting too close, I'm sure she would have stabbed me with her beak five times before I knew what happened. I only hung around long enough to take a few shots then I left. Hey Ann, I did notice the coloring of her, she had a lot more brown and almost orange coloring compared to the other Dove. She sure is a Beauty..
