[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
The spotted dove (Spilopelia chinensis) is a small and somewhat long-tailed pigeon which is a common resident breeding bird across its native range on the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. The species has been introduced into many parts of the world and feral populations have become established.

This species was formerly included in the genus Streptopelia with other turtle-doves, but studies suggest that they differ from typical members of that genus. This dove is long tailed buff brown with a white-spotted black collar patch on the back and sides of the neck. The tail tips are white and the wing coverts have light buff spots.

There are considerable plumage variations across populations within its wide range. The species is found in light forests and gardens as well as in urban areas. They fly from the ground with an explosive flutter and will sometimes glide down to a perch. It is sometimes also called the mountain dove, pearl-necked dove or lace-necked dove.

Hello Ram,
A lovely Spotted Dove captured from a rear POV. From this angle we can clearly see the beautifully spotted plumage on its wings, back, and upper neck. You still managed to capture its eye with a hint of catchlight visible. I like the colorful blurred BG.
PS. Not sure if we will have internet connections while in Africa, but look forward to getting back on when we return in two weeks.

Ciao Ram, great capture of lovely dove in nice pose on beautiful blurry BG, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Ram,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Spotted Dove. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
