A couple of shots of a pair of beautiful juvenile mourning doves that were in our garden this evening. It was dusk so I had to shoot with high ISO to be able to use an aperture to get decent DOF. I can't believe what the budget combination of the K-x and 55-300 can do. PP with aperture and Nik DFine.

ISO 6400

ISO 5000

Stunning shots. I love the detail in the 2nd but the composition of the 1st beats the pants off it.
