Beautiful close photo of this Smaragdvlekduif. Good sharpness with excellent details in the plumage. Beautiful natural colours and a nice pose with eye contact. The blue head looks a bit strange to me. I've seen this dove in Malawi too, it's a common species.

Complimenti,veramente bello questo esemplare di colomba mai vista prima con questi colori stupendi,un peccato che non sia in piena luce,eccellente nitidezza e ottimi dettagli bella la composizione .
Grazie della condivisione.
Very beautiful and as crisp as we are used to with your images. It seems you use the terms "pigeon" and "dove" interchangeably or do the doves include more than just pigeons? Will try and look it up. I feed the doves here and have a regular contingent of about 30 but have never seen one of these amongst them, so I am sure they do not occur in this part of the Eastern Cape. Once again my congratulations on a very beautiful and, to me, unusual bird even though they seem to be quite common in their area of distribution. Thank you and best wishes.

Great capture of this Dove. I really like the pose and composition. You captured good eye contact and a view of his side and back that shows his markings. Good DOV that shows off a nice natural scene. Good sharp detail.
Thanks for sharing

I love the gorgeous markings on this pretty little Wood Dove. The iridescent bluish green spots are a real eyecatcher to say the least. It's interesting how much the bird resembles our Mourning doves here in the States, except for those few uniquely colorful markings. The dark bands on it's lower back and tail are also quite attractive. Well done!!

Emerald-spotted Wood Dove is what a pretty Columbid species. It is similar a bit to Namaque Dove with shiny parts of wing and general appearance. You nicely captured it, with nice focus, POV and exposure. Thanks for sharing this beauty. Well done.

I have seen them in the wild but were never fortunate to get a good shot at one. Your composition exceeds my wildest dreams with regards to the perfect sharpness, splendid detail, beautiful colors, eye sparkle and excellent low POV! Thanks for sharing your Birds of the KNP with me.

The traces of emerald colors are well spotted and the clarity of the image is brilliant. Love the tight framing with superb plumage details. Beautiful work as always and have a great WE.

a nice little emerald dove. I find them not easy to take on picture because they mostly walk on the ground.
You found a very nice pose and show us a nice bird.

You use your Sony compact with great skill to achieve this fine image of the Emerald-spotted Dove in difficult lighting. The result is fine sharpness, nice natural colours and an excellent composition with the natural forest floor BG.
Thanks and enjoy your Easter, you and Loot,
