[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Zebra Dove (Geopelia striata) also known as Barred Ground Dove, is a bird of the dove family Columbidae, native to South-east Asia. It is closely related to the Peaceful Dove of Australia and New Guinea and the Barred Dove of eastern Indonesia. These two were classified as subspecies of the Zebra Dove until recently and the names Peaceful Dove and Barred Dove were often applied to the whole species.

Hello Foozi,
Un very fine dove , this Geopelia striata! You show it with this beautilful square composition. I like the bird's glance towards the photographer too. Good contrast against the green blurred background, which however looks a little bit unnatural on my screen.
Kind regards

This is quite an interesting species of Doves found in your region, Foozi.
A very good capture from a perspective that displays its colours and features very clearly.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Foozi,
The Zebra dove is surely a beautiful bird with it's black and white striped plumage painted with dabs of rufous and white splotches. Wonderful focus and attractive framing. Well done!!
