Oh my the color of this bird is so lovely. One would need to be careful of those thorns but it seems well "feathered".

stunning feathered pastel softness against the thorns, seemingly of no consequence to the dove.

Ouch! that is a thorny perch. The doves have so much more color when you see them up close. Just beautiful.

A thorny perch is safe a place to be with all that fluff/padding.

Great capture, B!
