Emerald Dove - Chalcophaps indica

Todays whilst wandering around the low lying areas of the rainforest, I found a group of emerald doves that were having a bath. The rainforest provides many small pools, and aquifers with fresh water, making it a paradise for birds.

Photographically it turned out better than expected. with smooth reflections from the water, soft textures from the feathers, and sharp refractions from the water droplets. Making the scene very unusual and unique.

Unusual as the concept of a clean pigeon.
