We always have one dove pair living here, somewhere in the nearby trees. I have never seen a flock of doves, so last evening I was pretty surprised to see all of these. Because of the post-rain colors in the sky, they were lit up like little golden Christmas tree ornaments. I wasn't sure what they were because of the golden color, so I was surprised when I figured it out. I guess they were just basking in the beauty of the day, just as I was. I did not have a filter on my lens for these shots. The little bit of rain we had washed every bit of dirt from the air and left us with gorgeous blues and golds.
