Cedar Fence

Mourning Doves on Fence

This fence is above a sand bake where bank swallows make their homes. I was hoping to photograph swallows on the fence but it was a tad windy and there were no swallows in sight. I could HEAR them but not see them. These doves were out on the fence though.

I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

Well you know, if you can't photograph what you want then you do what you can.

Nice shot.

If you can't swallow something then you ought to try something you can chew on. See what a good "moral" lesson you provided today?

Cool shot. Is a "sand bake" the same thing as a sand bank? :)
