Amen...and weren't those colors lovely!

I just got this feeling that you guys wanted to see another dove...of course, I could be wrong, it does happen.



Good light...it always makes more difference than anything else!

Thanks! I appreciate the comment! You would think I'd get tired of shooting doves, but every shot is a new challenge and a new look, even if only subtly different. Yep, you do get addicted when you have a camera at your easy reach at all times! I would prefer handsome squirrels, but in the Summer months they are too drunk and rowdy to do much posing.....Raccoons are plenty willing but I have to go out in the hot humid night air to do the shooting...and I'm lazy and spoiled by the cool AC inside!

Regards!

Looking through my gallery here at PF, which I haven't visited in ages, I remember that I used to shoot a lot of blooms like you guys.
I enjoyed it, but then the squirrels complained about them and I stopped.....

Lavender blue...dilly dilly....Anyone remember that old tune?


It was 1959...It was my dilly dilly girlfriends favorite color....and is still mine!

I used to shoot a lot of people too......squirrels didn't like that either.......




Funny how our shooting style and subjects change over the years.....

Regards!

I want one of those lenses! Love those shots!

Like with the dove, I got a feeling you guys wanted a squirrel shot....of course, I could be wrong again, it does happen?

Only two days away from the "Dog Days" of Summer....and squirrels are frantically practicing their best Dog Days poses...some practice year around and are already experts....I think this is one of them?
