[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Eurasian Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) most often simply called the Collared Dove,[2][3][4][5] also sometimes hyphenated as Eurasian Collared-dove[6] is a species of dove native to Asia and Europe, and also recently introduced in North AmericaIt is a medium sized dove, distinctly smaller than the Wood Pigeon, similar in length to a Rock Pigeon but slimmer and longer-tailed, and slightly larger than the related Turtle Dove, 30–33 cm long from tip of beak to tip of tail, with a wingspan of 47–55 cm, and a weight of 125–240 g. It is grey-buff to pinkish-grey overall, a little darker above than below, with a blue-grey underwing patch. The tail feathers are grey-buff above, and dark grey tipped white below; the outer tail feathers also tipped whitish above. It has a black half-collar edged with white on its nape from which it gets its name. The short legs are red and the bill is black. The iris is red, but from a distance the eyes appear to be black, as the pupil is relatively large and only a narrow rim of reddish-brown iris can be seen around the black pupil. The eye is surrounded by a small area of bare skin, which is either white or yellow. The two sexes are virtually indistinguishable; juveniles differ in having a poorly developed collar, and a brown iris.[2][4][5

hello Tibi
very nice composition with good details and lovely colours

Bonjour Tibi,
Il me semble que l'image manque un peu de contraste et que le téléobjectif écrase un tout petit peu le sujet qui est tout de męme relativement bien valorisé dans une belle attitude.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Buen ángulo de disparo y unas complicadas luces , aunque recolviste bien el conjunto.
Saludos Bartha: J. Ignasi.

Szia Tibi,
Nagyon szépek a részletek, úgy a fényben mint az árnyékokban egyaránt, gratulálok!
Szép napos időt a hétégére!

Hello Tibor,
Lovely "look back"of the Eurasian Collared Dove. A picture taken in a natural surrounding with a nice colored background. Difficult to manage the mix of light and shadow. You did well!
Kind regards
