About this image:

The Dove on my shoulder is the newest member of my family :). My beautiful Birdie Boy. He literally flew into my apartment a month ago. He was determined to stay. My attempts to relocate him failed as he kept finding his way back to me. Fortunately, the vet gave him a clean bill of health. I adore this little guy, he has my heart.


He has a strong personality and is very stubborn but he is also a little lovie. He makes me laugh everyday. He loves to perch on me and always wants to be as close to me as he can get. He also loves balancing on one foot. He has introduced me to the wonderful world of birds.


The sky featured in this image was taken one enchanted evening as the sun was setting, on my balcony. I loved the gold and blue hues, grabbed my camera and snapped away as the beautifully ominous clouds slowly stretched out before me.
