Mourning dove and fresh snow.
A flight of six doves has been visiting the tube feeder and porch railing off and on this morning.
Doves are calm and calming. The yin to blue jay-and-starling yang.
There is actually a species of dove called the Peaceful Dove, native to Australia and New Guinea.
And just because I feel like it, two depictions of doves in ancient and medieval art…
Doves raiding a jewelry box, from the House of Fauns in Pompeii.
Doves perch in a peridexion tree, where they are safe from the dragons waiting below. The dragons cannot catch the doves unless they leave the tree.
