This little love bug was nesting in my sister's planter box outside her kitchen window. She (the dove, not my sister) would sit on her eggs dutifully until the father of her children would arrive in a swoop and they would carefully change positions so that the mommy could go and find food and stretch her legs. It was really something exciting to watch the dance of these two dove's as they shared the load of parenthood. Soon, three babies appeared and the dance continued day and night to keep their newborns safe and well fed. The beauty of mother nature!
