This young dove chose to build her nest in a quiet courtyard at church.  Unfortunately, she chose a window ledge behind the rosemary bush, hidden from view for anyone in the courtyard (seldom does anyone actually go out there), but in plain view of anyone walking down the hallway.  People frequently walk down the hallway, especially on Sunday morning, but she seems to realize they cannot get to her or her precious eggs through the window, so she just sits there.  This lets people get quite close for a good view, but she doesn't seem to mind, even when I have the camera less than a foot from her.  That leads to some really good close ups, but I didn't want to bother her too much.
I hope she's able to raise her brood there.  I'll keep you posted.

Exceptional photos. Close up the feathers look so perfectly groomed. Like they have been brushed... you know like when you vacuum the carpet and the just vacuumed indents are left behind.

Good luck with your surgery on Wednesday Eeyore. I hope your final report is good as well.

You are right! These scorpions are monsters... and it is very creepy. My good friend has a niece (8 months old) that was stung by one and spent time in the trauma center and PICU on a ventilator in a medically induced coma so they could get the seizures to stop... what a nightmare.
