Got you !
Flat on my belly from the kitchen door, the idea was to just get his head in view and everything around it blurred.
It worked but boy, how difficult is that, as Doves do they peck for their food, so his head was going up and down like a yoyo.
In focus, out of focus, in focus, out of focus, etc, etc you get the picture.
Eventually many shot later I had the one in the bag so to speak !
