[Note Guidelines] 攝影師備註
The Eurasian collared dove (Streptopelia decaocto), most often simply called the collared dove, also sometimes hyphenated as Eurasian collared-dove, is a species of dove native to warm temperate and subtropical Asia, and introduced in North America in the 1980s.

Collared doves are sometimes kept in aviculture, and form strong relationships with each other.

The genus name Streptopelia is from Ancient Greek streptos, "collar" and peleia, "dove". The specific decaocto is a latinisation of the Greek word for "eighteen", from deca, "ten", and octo, "eight". In Greek mythology, a servant complained bitterly about pay of just 18 pieces a year, and the gods changed her to a dove that still cries mournfully.

Hello Ram,
The Eurasian Collar Dove is a beautiful bird as we can easily see from your photo. I like their subtle plumage colors accented by the black neck collar. Sharply focused and displaying nice eye contact. You had to photograph them in some rather harsh lighting yet you managed the exposure quite well in spit of it.

Hello Sir,

A nice shot of the lovely pair. I have seen the Eurasian Doves near my place as well. Love the eye contact & the catch light.

Warm Regards,
Satirtha
