Water in the deep woods

This is a pond, or possibly a lot of standing water after the heavy rains we had recently.  But I think it’s a pond higher than usual from the rains.  Regardless, the water was very calm this afternoon and the greens, shadows, and clean reflections caught my attention.  I chose an angle in which the nearer branches and leaves framed my image and set the exposure to be slightly longer to accentuate peacefulness.

Doves four

I put bird seed out every morning and the doves tend to feed after the blue jays, woodpeckers, and squirrels have taken the sunflower seeds and peanuts.  These four just seemed to be relaxing on the deck rail on this chilly Friday morning.   I liked how the two on the left resemble opposite bookends, and the two on the right are also looking in opposite directions, just further apart.
