Dove In Flight
So I didn't get a photo post done yesterday - the first day I missed since beginning this project. I still found beauty in many things, though.
I may not get a photo taken today, either. We had "family church" at home this morning with our youngest not being well, and are making it an entire day of relaxing (with the exception of yard work on my husband's part). In a few hours, we'll be popping popcorn and watching old shows together again. I love that time as a family.
It's another windy day (do you live in an area with horribly windy, dusty months of spring as well?) and my allergies just really make me want to stay inside. So I'm enjoying beauty in little things like expressions on my children's faces. And of course, the birds at our feeders. (Maybe I will get a photo, after all.)
I wanted to share this photo I took a few days ago. This dove was watching me carefully and wasn't sure of me and my camera way down on the ground below. I was ready when it decided to take flight and thought it was beautiful as it flew away. This particular type of dove is actually a bully to the other birds around our area, and when they are near our feeder I try to shoo them away. They aren't native to our area and cause problems for the doves that are native (and more shy, so I have yet to get a good photo of one). But I found beauty in one the other day. They are beautiful, if bullies.

Please find beauty in the rest of your weekend!
