On the way home from the beach today this little dove was stunned on the road. I stopped and picked it up and it sat quietly in a box til recovered then flew away, but not before I got a few shots :)
Taken at Etty Bay, far north Queensland.

    Love a dove! 8 ) Gorgeous patterns and colours, especially the salmon pink/grey, yum! Don’t think I’ve ever seen one of these Spotted Turtle Doves around our neighbourhood.
