Hello fellow bloggers. It has been awhile since I was last on here. Lots of things going on and just plain life happenings if you know what I mean. I have been working on various cards these last few weeks and think I am ready to share. LOL! I don't know about your place, but it is definitely the mating season for our feathery friends. My husband was inspecting the rain gutter on our house and happen to here the cooing of these doves. He made sure not to get to close so he wouldn't disturb their nest or upset them. Of course he had to come and get the camera to take a few pictures of the female dove sitting on her eggs and the father with his proud chest out over watching making sure nothing happens to her or their little family. We couldn't understand why they had picked the lower eve below the larger one until we happen to see a cat trying to get to them. Luckily there is no tree near and even if the cat tried to get on the roof, he would fall to the ground as there is quite a distant to try and jump and needlessly to say he did try several attempts but always fell. Do you see those beautiful colors on his chest? So rich and seeing them up close is even more amazing. I have seen many doves but none with this coloring and I wonder if they are from the south as far as Mexico or South America. I always feel blessed when God has so graciously let the birds nest near our home. Last year it was the hummingbirds, this year it is the doves. Hmm.... I wonder will we be able to see the little ones before they take flight? Only time will tell. Hope you have enjoyed this picture.
