Well, maybe not that “turtle” dove, but dove anyway because the real one can only be found in Southern Africa during winter time here up north. So no punctilio!

Congratulations on top ten - should have scored higher IMO. I really admire your work - much of my DPC time lately is spent browsing your Africa pics. You are the MAN!

Congrats on a top ten. Apparently white doves don't generate as many comments about not being turtle doves as dark ones do. Go figure.

Love the shallow dof in this one, but find it a bit tightly cropped on the sides.

I wonder what a turtle dove is? These are doves, at any rate. Nice photo, soft focus works here, and the big bokeh spot actually enhances rather than detracts. 7.

Really like the use of shallow DOF in this. Great photo!

Those look suspiciously like city pigeons, but they're cousins of some sort. The one on the left of the picture looks a bit blurrier than his friend.

Look more like pigeons , but quite close enough for me! Excellent choice of depth of field, an I love the grey colour pallette.

Very nice shot. The bokeh to the light on the right is not ideal but not unpleasant (8)

One of the better bird shots. Back to bump you up to 8.

Fantastis focus.

Looks like you used a long lens and unfortunatly the guy n the left is just a tad out of focus. Nice try!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Awesome shot. Would personally have loved it more with the foreground in focus.
