    This dove was just sitting quietly on my wall.

    I decided to see how close I could get, step by step. A couple steps in.

    A few more steps, about 5 feet away.

    And then he flew away.

    That is amazing, Dave. I usually can't get within 20 feet of one.

    First time for me...don't have them here in Boston.

    Love the contrast with the brick wall.

    Ya, they usually scatter, but this one just kept an eye on me.

    Thanks. Even though we are all one world, it is amazing the variety from place to place.
