Thanks for visiting, Jerry. The white in the shoulder makes this male in my opinion....:)

This close up of a shy forest dove was taken with my first copy of the 100-400 L IS, whose sharpness is just average. I wish the environment is a bit less cluttered, but I'd be happy to get this capture anytime.

Excellent shot! Details and colours are good. We have this one in Queensland Australia too.
