HA! I love that picture. I have never seen a mourning dove puffed up like that. He looks cold!

Eve said...

He's so beautiful Shelley...maybe you shouldn't look at my post today. Put a little blindfold on Bob first.

Shelly: I think that Bob has been working out on all the feed you have been offering. He looks like he has more then a full belly.

HANNIBAL said...

Funny shot! He looks HUGE!

Wow Bob is growing by leaps and bounds.

Ruffled Feathers photos are my FAVORITES!

Craig Glenn said...

Love that photo. I think it's so cool when they puff up like that.

Good job getting that shot,
Craig

The Mourning Doves are one of my favourite birds. They've nested above the same arbour in our garden for the past few years. Bob is a handsome dove.
We name ALL the birds too :-)

Is it cold down there Shelley? He might be all puffed up because he's cold, or he's just had a bath :-)

Oh Shelley, you make me laugh and I needed that today! Bob IS a big puff ball for whatever reason! cute.

Tina said...

Shelly, too funny, but what a neat shot of Bob! A handsome dove indeed! Being a dove expert I was wondering if you can you tell me why Bob and his flock need to make such a squeaky noise as they fly??..a sound that resembles a squeak from not oiling those wing hinges??

Lynne said...

Bob makes me think of Jiffy-Pop popcorn!

Kathiesbirds said...

He sure looks buffed (I mean puffed) up!

ramblingwoods said...

LOL..it does look that way doesn't it? LOL...

Leedra said...

I told you the mourning doves don't know when to stop eating. LOL

Looks like he needs to work out.

Mildred said...

What a beautiful picture. The detail is amazing. A few minutes ago, my kitchen curtain slipped off the window & my cat PUFFED UP just like Bob!

Shellmo said...

Kallen - he definitely was cold!

Eve - Bob is now tramautized - ha,ha!

Fishing Guy - he is well fed!

Hannibal - I think he's grown!

Gardener - I think he's the biggest dove in the yard!

birdlady - me too!

Craig - thanks so much!

Deb - glad I'm not the only one who names her birds! :-)

Nick - he was cold. I just like to let my imagination run away.... ha,ha

Jalynn - glad you think I'm funny!

Tina - I wish I knew! Now that you bring it up - I have noticed that squeaking sound! Maybe Nick up above knows.

Lynne - that description made me laugh!

Kathie - or both! ha,ha!

Rambling - just crazy thoughts from my head once again...

Leedra - he believes he's at an all you can eat chinese buffet.

Bob be a happy boy!

Daisy said...

Bob is looking pretty buff! I hope he's not taking steroids! So many bodybuilders fall into that trap! 8-O

Great shot, Shelley! :D
