These plump little loves — tiny doves that hatched almost two weeks ago — are on the verge of fledging. They live in a rabbit’s foot fern that hangs in my back garden. Their busy mother was away gathering munchies for the noisy little beasties, but for this moment, they were quiet and I was able to soft-softly snap this photo…🤫
…gorgeous babies.
