Geopelia humeralis.

Ocean Drive, Greenhill, Queensland, Australia

I couldn't decide which one to post, the single bird or the pair, so you get both photos :)

    Looks great with the yellow background.

    Those bars on their wings are cool :) I'm guessing they're good for camo as well. Nice shot :)

    Indeed :) Took a bit of jostling to make sure they stayed in the yellow too.
    I dare say.

    Sweet shot of the two. I like how the bar looks here.

    It's pretty nifty eh? In the sun it shines a bright bronze colour.
