Peace from the Wild by lyndemc

Peace from the Wild

Found struggling about on the ground because of a broken wing, this Mourning dove has been adopted into my family of pet birds, which include ring-neck doves. Her wild nature has remained despite having been around me for several years so I wasn't sure a Beauty in Brown photo op would be successful as she's terribly "flighty" (despite being flightless). Surprisingly though, she sat perfectly still, even allowing me to reposition her several times. I'm always touched when nature grants me a moment or two of peace and trust, long to get a picture.

The pink on her neck is truly as vibrant as it appears!
This is so touching. Not exactly sure why. I do not like or dislike birds...oh well beautiful.

Thank you for rescuing her - I know that birds can adapt to no longer being able to fly and she obviously has.

I love both your story and your image! I also love that your mom gave you a backdrop cloth for your photography...what a thoughtful gift!

I’m wondering if you could take a moment to answer a question: a while back you posted a link in one of your comments on my pictures. It was a link to a song video on YouTube about creation. I am having trouble finding it now, and I am wondering if you remember it and if you could provide it again? I want to share it with a friend who needs a bit of a reminder about God’s love and sovereignty.

Super capture. Surprised it hasn't gotten more used to being around humans.
