MORNING DOVE TALK

January 31, 2013

One of the activities I like, is bird watching.  It is very relaxing and we can learn a lot from our feathered friends.   I just happened to photograph this little exchange early one morning last Summer. Guess what these two are talking about? BE ENCOURAGED!  BE BLESSED!
