Such a Tame Dove

An incredibly tame dove found the extra birdseed under my seed cake feeder tonight.  I wonder if she’s the baby dove that we saw a few weeks ago in a nest at Ian’s house?  I know Mourning Doves are common, but this bird intrigued me.  She let me crouch down and use my 70-200mm lens to get eye-level shots of her.  I wish the rain lily hadn’t been in the way.  Rich found me stretched out on the grass, and decided that this was more supporting evidence in the case for “Jess is going crazy”.  Squirt, on the other paw, was happy to stay out on the porch for longer while I photographed!
