I went out to the garden the other day to get some closeups of some of the flowers this year.
One of the plants I wanted to capture was this Butterfly Weed that has gotten pretty good sized this year and very pretty.
The sun was shining and from the door of the house... it looked like the plant was glowing.  So pretty!

  As I was walking toward the plant adjusting my camera....out of the corner of my eye I spotted movement.
So I stopped where I was.... and as I looked toward the movement this is what I saw.
One of two baby Morning Doves.  The other one scurried into the foliage so I couldn't get a pic of it....but this one just squatted and watched me watch it.
I'm so glad the pic turned out.  And I just had to share.


  1. Love butterfly weed and mourning doves both! Great pics! Hope you are staying cool up there.

  2. I've never seen a baby mourning dove though I know there are plenty of nests around. Love the bush :0)


  3. Thanks for sharing your lovely flowers. So glad you caught the dove. It is always such a pleasure to see your nature pics!

  4. I have never heard of butterfly weed but it is beautiful. Your reaction to the baby doves is similar to mine the first time deer showed up in our backyard.


I try to always reply back to anyone that takes their precious time to comment on my blog so I sure hope you have your email enabled.
Thanks for stopping by and
I hope you're having a great day....Linda
