Thursday 14 April 2011: And Half a Partridge in a Pear Tree
"We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none: for salvation, but it is far off from us."
Isaiah (ch. LIX, v. 11)
I spotted this Spotted Turtle-Dove (Streptopelia chinensis, if you want to know) as I reached work today, and got as close as I could, snapping away. I quite like this shot (cropped to portrait from landscape) as it's reasonably sharp, and has a pair of Crested Pigeons on the TV aerial in the background.
