Lifecruisers contribution to theme Skinny

Theme: Skinny | Next week: Important
PhotoHunt in Technorati

We spotted this skinny tree at the Canarian island Fuerteventura, but it were not noticed by us at first, because we only saw the doves. Before the camera was done with the imaging process, all the other doves that were in the tree did fly away, so you’re not going to see how cool it really was…

As usual when you’re going to shoot some really cool photo, right? *giggles*

The doves most certainly are Eurasian Collared-doves, Streptopelia decaocto. It has not been common in Sweden, they say that it has starting to show up more often, even though I’ve never seen any here around Stockholm or any where else.

This specie spread across Europe in the 1900s, but it’s said to originate from India and then in the 1600s came to Turkey and spread within Europe from there. That’s also the reason for it’s name within Europes countries, Swedish: Turkduva, Norway: Tyrkerdue, French: Tourterelle turque, Spanish: Tórtola turca, Germany: Türkentaube.

See what we have in common here? It’s a globetrotter dove! *giggles*

I’d love to be able to fly myself instead of with airplanes….

    I never know the difference between a dove and a pigeon if there is any. But your tree really looks skinny, lol ! From pigeons I know that they poop on our terrace and Arthur doesn’t like them. Sometimes they attack cats !

    Hi Captn’,
    I have two pairs of these that regually visit the feeding table at my signalbox.Come to think of it one pair did look browner than the other pair , so perhaps they were the ones in your photo who where on holiday. Did you see the pure white pigeon on my post from the wildlife rescue sanctuary the other day. I thought it was a dove at first, but it is definately a pigeon.

    Cheers Mark

    Ah! I was thinking in terms of the Christmas song – 2 turtle doves… and looking next for the Pear Tree! It’s a beautiful photo — they look like they were “posing” just for you!

    Very nice photo. How was Fuerteventura apart from the great landscape and photo shootouts?


    Fuerteventura was awesome, lots of great beaches and windy ones suitable for windsurfing too! We had surfers right outside our hotel window actually. Nice to watch them from the balcony. The sand on the beaches were like Sahara desert sand, in fact often it was from Sahara :-)
