Default 02 March 2013

Yesterday afternoon from my home window I took many photos of a pair of Laughing Dove trying to mate. It was almost comical, they need to do flying displays and then get down to business. The male just couldn't get it right and kept overshooting the female. I made my photos into a PDF Slide show which is too large to show here.
I have posted a link to a large transfer company, it will be on line available until 8 March next. Here's the link.(hope that it works)
Plus a couple of shots where the male try to land but almost takes the head off his intended mate.

Great slideshow John. It looks like that the male lacks experience

Thanks Guatam, before anyone else corrects me the Doves are in fact of course Collared Dove and not laughing Dove. It must be the heavy medication that I'm taking blocking my old brain cells LOL

These are fantastic! In the second shot, she looks quite unhappy with his ineptitude.

Thanks, I was so happy to get the many photos of these birds I have over 80 shots in the slide show I have attached, did you get to watch the slide show?

I'm a little disappointed with the lack of interest it has found when I was so happy to share

I checked it out and the photos are very good and humorous! I wonder if maybe the reason you are not getting too much response is because of the warning about downloading the file. My computer was telling me that it could be harmful to download it, but I did so anyway. Question--did they ever, well you know!

Maybe that could be the reason, I have used the free File Transfer many times and never had any problems. No they female gave him so many chances but each time he missed. in between as shown in my slide show they stopped and looked like she was giving him a hard time. I'm thinking of adding some captions that would make it funny. No he never made it
