Rock Dove

Rock Dove (Image ID 35966)
CommentI am submitting this image of a pair of Rock Doves because I like the contrasting colours of the sheen in the plumage of the two birds. I also like the closed eye of the bird being preened (male, I think), which suggests to me that he is enjoying this (though this might be an anthropomorphism!).
