Winter Warmer Beanie Crochet Pattern For Beginners

This Winter Warmer Beanie is the perfect all rounder beanie that suits everyone.

Dove Nest

Laughing Turtle Dove

We have a Laughing Turtle Dove nesting in our yard this year. She has chosen an excellent spot with good cover. I say 'she' but this is most likely the male as they generally do the day shift.

The below shots have been taken with my 55-250mm lens, the above shot with that lovely 150mm lens. You can really see the difference in quality.

We won't be taking very many photos so as not to disturb them sitting on their eggs even though you can almost reach out and touch the nest from our verandah.

The Laughing Turtle Dove is easily confused with the Spotted Turtle Dove as their colouring is very similar but if you look closely the laughing dove has more colour on it's chest and no spots on their neck.

  10. I always wanted to own a nest. I dont know why. I just find it so organic, fragile and strong at the same time. #mysundayphoto

  11. Hi Stella, I almost don't want to type this comment for fear of disturbing her. She looks so settled on her nest and how lucky you are to be close enough to be able to observe the goings on once the chicks have hatched.

    I'm looking at getting another lens for Christmas, but am not really sure what to go for. Your 150mm lens shot definitely has the edge.
