Saturday Sightings -- Visitor in the Back Yard

While I was visiting my parents last Sunday, helping them prepare gifts for a couple of needy families, I spotted another visitor perched on the piping of the awning at my parents' back yard deck.

A mourning dove!  It was fluffing its feathers a bit, and when I tried to sneak onto the deck for a closer shot, it became edgy.  Praise the Lord for a telephoto lens!

It's nice to see a sign of outdoor life in this frigid December weather.

Living life.
Capturing life.

  1. Oh, what a beautiful sighting, Christine. I wish I have a telephoto lens so I can take bird photos like this. I love birdwatching but I can only go as close as my lens can :(

    Thank you for sharing your photo here @ Saturday Sightings.
    Have a blessed weekend.
