|Greenspotted Dove or Emeraldspotted Dove is distinguished by its dark bill and green wing spots. Habitat is thornveld, dry broad-leafed woodland and riverine forest. Common in suitable habitat in the eastern, south-eastern, central and northern parts of South Africa.|
I took the photo on the S100 route south of the Satara camp in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. It was early morning (08:54) and close to the river.

A warm welcome to TN, Willem.
What a beautiful dove! I have never seen this kind before.
The details on the bird are sharp and well exposed, bring out the fantastic metallic green sheen on the tip of the wing feathers. Good point of view and composition.
An excellent first post.
Looking forward to seeing more of your photos.
Thank you for sharing. : )

Very interesting subject. The composition, POV, blurred BG, Lighting and detail shown are excellent. TFS,
Nice capture, I recomend use of software to clean up the noise a little bit. But I like the shot anyway.
