  5. I love mourning doves. Hunting them has been illegal here for about a century, but recently they were trying to repeal the ban. I find the very idea of hunting these harmless and gentle birds to be the height of human arrogance and idiocy.

    Your photograph is beautiful, Daryl.

  21. I have not been able to get over the sheer size of the doves this year. They are so fat it's hard to believe they can still fly....
