I think this is a different spotted dove than the last one I took a photo of, but in the same area a few minutes later.
This one was cleaning itself whilst I was taking photos. I think for a moment it stopped to see what I was doing, then went back to cleaning itself.
What I believe I’ve captured is a bird wholly looking like a bird, but appearing in a way that feels somewhat-unfamiliar.
This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s TPM photo challenge for this week. The theme for this challenge is “Wild Animals”.
I suggest checking out Leanne’s photography, as well as checking out what other people submit into the challenge.
You can find the challenges here.
I hope you enjoy.
