Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto)

Such a familiar bird that it's easy to forget just how pretty it is. A jacket playing the role of a bean bag made this late afternoon shot possible at a very low shutter speed.

Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm L IS USM lens, 1/85th sec, f/5.6, 400mm at ISO 500


  1. Good shot Tim. They always seem to be very slightly scruffy to me.

  2. Even on sunny days the light isn't very good at this time of year Tim, looks like its ISO 500 plus for a while yet!
