L'Amour

Kyyhkyläiset ... In Love like a Dove
















Hoppla ... Hoopla


Tässä kohtaa se meni jo tirkistelyksi ... At this point I felt like a Peeping Tom


Kääntäkäämme siis häveliäästi katseemme kohti kuutamoa ... Let us thus avert our eyes towards the moon

Sepelkyyhkyt ... Woodpigeons ... Columba Palumbus

So full of LOVE with the doves and they look so sugary sweet. :) Lovely captures as always.

Du store - for noen flotte bilder! Og flotte duer! Noe av det lekreste jeg har sett! Aldeles nydelig å se som de koser med hverandre :) Rene scoopet det der! Månedens beste post av alle blogger jeg har tittet innom! (og da mener jeg mars måned)

Og du? Måtte le av det du skrev hos meg, om at det var da frekt at isen har tint hos oss....:) Det er bare det at der er det litt åpent nesten hele vinteren, resten av vannet er islagt. Men det begynner så vidt å åpne seg nå.... :)

Tarolino said...

Thanks for your nice words Pacey.

Tack Valkyrien för dina fina ord. Jag blev själv så betagen av dessa två att jag måste dela med mej.

George said...

I LOVE it. Great post.

Tarolino said...

Thanks George. These two certainly put the 'spring' in my step and in my mind.

You were a peeping Tarolino...that's for sure!

Judy said...

they are lovely photos!!and i likr the segue too!
i had never noticed that wonderful pinky shade in their breast feathers before! i really like it!

when you ask about the cattails - yes they are the same as bulrushes, i think. i would look it up, but my lap and left hand have been comandeered by the cat!

the body of water is part of the carp river, which is barely navigable by canoe. there were flooding problems, so the city excavated out this catchment basin in the marsh. it is roughly triangular, 150 m long, with the width going from 50 m to 15 - had to look it up for an uncle last fall, and happen to remember the numbers.

what beautiful photos to behold!

God's creations are just simply marvelous.

Tarolino said...

Thankyou Vicky. You are not wrong there.

No jopa jotain. Hienoimpia lintukuvia, jota olen koskaan nähnyt.

Tietäisin kyllä paikan, jossa noita ihasteltaisiin aivan hirveästi. Jos kiinnostaa, niin kirjoita. Osoite löytyy kirkkoblogin kannesta

Kiitos Matti. Siinä tuli kehua kerrakseen :)
