White on blue

.
Blue and white--Israel's colors (like on the flag and in the tallit prayer shawl).
White doves and a blue sky.

Remember the baby bird from last Saturday's post?
These are the baby's parents and the adults who live in my neighbor's dovecot.
Enlarge the photo and you'll see the feathers on their legs, covering their feet.
.
Happy SkyWatch Friday to all the sky-posters.

They are quite feathery! This photo makes an eye-pleasing composition in many ways.

Blue skies here too today, and 100F!

Birds in the sky are not always flying. I like the blue-white connection.

Dimple said...

Pretty picture Dina. Two white, a gray,two more white, another gray, and finally two white. All underscored by the power lines and backed by that beautiful blue sky. Very nice!

I don't think I've seen bird's feathers do that before. Lovely shot.

Dina, the Saint Michael's Abbey was begun in the late 10th century for the Benedictine monks on the Via Francigena (the pilgrimage route to Rome), it became an important study centre and was enlarged many times until 1622. Now it's in the hand of the Rosminian fathers and in 1990 there has been a great work of restoration.

This is so cool. How very unusual those birds are.

Lovely shot.

Great imagination to tie birds sitting on a wire to your national flag and I love it.
