Our patio doves are almost ready to leave us.
Today the nest is empty. Doves are gone. They are not gone gone. They’ll be back for the night, I think.
They learned to fly yesterday.
Those are the last few pictures I’ve taken the day before they went out for walk around the patio fence! :-)
and this is where I found them yesterday! hanging out at the other end of the patio fence… peeking outside!
… waiting for mom to come home…
and when she came back she started feeding them but then I came out to take some pictures and they just freezed!!! all of them!
I’m not good with the sun flare shots, but yesterday I just couldn’t not to try it. The light was just perfect!
After I left them (kind of because I still was watching from the inside) the mom had started flying back and forth from the spot where they were all standing to the nest. She had done that about 3 times. After that one little dove did the same. I totally screwed that up – I had my camera set up on manual with all the setting when I was shooting outside. So I just wasn’t fast enough to adjusts everything and I ended up with 0 pictures of the fist attempt to flying of our patio dove. Grrr….
I was still hoping for the second dove to do the same…
That time I was all ready!!! ;-)
It didn’t happen though.
Mister/Miss Lazy just walked back to the nest…
Today I got up, checked on them and they were already gone! I saw them hanging out on the fence a few times, but for the most of the day they are gone.
Oh well… Finally I’m getting closer to have my patio back!!! :-)
and… My Little Red Pants making faces while eating a piece of bread and doggy waiting for the right time to steal it from her.
and baby getting naked.
hugs from my corner, everybody!
