Emerald Dove

My wife, Aarina and I were watching birds, when out of nowhere two Emerald Doves (Chalcophaps indica) landed in front of us. Aari, was wonder-struck by the grace and the colour of the doves, and  I for a moment wondered if I was even on earth. That's the magic these birds create. The white colour on its head looks like, chalk marks and on a female the white markings are not as extensive as on a male. The bird is quite a fast flier and I was unsuccessful in photographing one in flight. Now that is one challenge for some other day.
