SURPRISE - - - (Not-So-Plain Jane)

Eurasian Collared Dove.

When this bird is in flight, its true colors show - - - IF you're in a position to see the topside.

I was very pleasantly surprised, as I had only seen THIS and similar views until this shot.

Oakland Park, Florida -US- near Fort Lauderdale.

Shot from my balcony, overhead, Saturday afternoon, April 29, 2006.

 

See him LARGER.
