An Unexpected Surprise...



On my first trip out to photograph wildlife in this new year I didn't only photograph squirrels I also photographed these morning doves. It wasn't until I got home and downloaded the cards that I found this unexpected surprise. I didn't see the bird in the back ground flying until I opened this photo in camera raw for adjustments. I found it to be pretty neat and really liked what it brought to the photograph.
