This is a very common species in Portugal easily spotted anywhere.

Hello Jose,
What a stunning shot of this beautiful Eurasian Collared Dove. Perfectly posed, giving us a great look at it's pretty facial features and streamlined body. I love the soft lighting and excellent detail you managed to capture. Colors are natural, not overly saturated and the f/8 aperture resulted in plenty of DOF. A real eye catching image!!

Hi Jose!
Great shot of Eurasian collared dove; good sharpness and very nice details. Beautiful light and a lovely background created probably by the dark trees. Very nice catch-light and an elegant pose offered by this dove. Well done and thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,

Real beauty. Bravo!
