Beautiful turtle dove picture. Very nice pov and composition. Just wonder about the plumage color of this turtle dove that look strange to me. Very well done and tfs.
Though this is taken a little against the light, so that the colours are in the shade, one can make out that the colour of the eye is red. This, and the broader neck-band make it the Red-eyed Dove (Streptopelia semitorquata). The Cape Turtle Dove has a black eye and narrower neck-band without the grey shade on the top of the head like this image shows.
Nice composition and sharpness.
a nice shot of a dove. a commendable clarity. Ivan's enlightening note complements well this nice picture.

Whatever the exact ID, this is a very nice capture of a lovely dove under shade Annick, still, the amount of plumage detail is quite high and coloration characteristics high. TFS my friend, and best regards,

This is a beautifully composed shot with the angled twigs and soft foliage. I too wonder about the color of both bird and twigs.
TFS more of your amazing safari,
Evelynn : )

nice Dove picture.
The photo has good composition and excellent POV.
There's a slight blue colour cast but it could easily be sorted out in PS.
Sharp and very detailed with good clarity.
Excellent BG blurring DOF.

A lovely capture of this dove,it seems every region has a very similar looking dove like this.I think it would make a good theme.
Very good focus and sharpness,the markings and feather detail shows well.
Good use of the lighting.
