My mum's birthday today. Really wet again here but at lunch time a break in the rain meant my (lovely) friend Clancy and I got to walk up the drive to the letter box without getting wet.
Later this little friend visited. I looked her up, she's an emerald dove. In another light that wing is pure emerald green but I like this shot with all the lovely brown and russet hues. I set her free outside and was a bit surprised when she walked away!
