Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Spotted Doves Spotted Leaving” by Robert Henderson. Location: Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania.
“The two emerald-spotted doves have had enough of the aggressive pair of pied kingfishers who wanted the branch all to themselves,” explains Henderson. “The primary feature normally used to identify emerald-spotted wood doves are the iridescent green spots on their wings. The warm rufous undersides of their wings are beautiful as well.”
Canon 7D Mark II, 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM lens with 1.4X III teleconverter. Exposure: 1/3200 sec., f/8, ISO 500, 560mm.
