    Yesterday was our first measurable snow of the entire winter, and even then my community only got 1/2" - 1", depending on your elevation. A dole of doves (to use an archaic term) made themselves right at home around our front yard feeders. I haven't been shooting much recently, and it was nice to get a camera back in my hands. OM-D E-M5 + Minolta MD Tele Rokkor 135/3.5.

    The shots are lovely.

    When I read the title of the thread, I couldn't help thinking of Gertrude Stein's "Pigeons in the grass - Alas!"
