Eurasian Collared Dove

Good morning,

This young fellow was so tame...
...that he (she?  I can't tell)...
...allowed me to walk up very close and take pictures...
...as he looked seven decks down to the dockside to watch the lines being removed...
...as our ship was about to depart...
...beautiful, blue Nassau, Bahamas. 
He finally flew away as we were pulling away from the dock.

About two years ago I posted a series of pictures of The Eagle and the Seagull in this same port.

Enjoy,
Lois

Hello Everyone,

Yes, Granny, you are so right. And, I see My Honey reads my blog and agrees with you, too. :))))

Thanks for dropping by, everyone.

Hugs,
Lois
