Blue Mountains Photographer ~ Hanging with the wildlife ~ again

This is a brown Cuckoo Dove which arrives on our water tank every so often. He waits for me to feed him (or her, I’m not sure) and hangs around long enough to be talked to and admired. So this time when he arrived, I took a little time to take his photograph.
If I had a choice I’d spend all my time hanging out taking photographs of wildlife but it’s not entirely practical at the moment with a busy life and business!
I love this bird’s eye – such beautiful colours and structure… as a friend commented,  ‘There could be a whole galaxy in that eye.’
