Happy Valentine's Day!

I have a special treat for today, a collection of photographs I took last December, portraying an unbelievably cute couple of doves.

I was strolling down on the Hoe in Plymouth when I noticed some white pigeons on the wall. It was a sunny and pleasant day so I stopped to watch them for a while.

Two of them, one white and the other dark started grooming each other!

I snapped a couple of photos before they separated, but I continued watching them interact.

It didn't take long for them to return to their affectionate play.

It was a real pleasure to see them share an intimate moment. Are they kissing?

It certainly looks like a kiss.

Doves are sacred to Venus, goddess of love. When you see how much they enjoy each other it becomes clear why people associate them with romance and sensuality.

I hope that seeing them warms your heart as much as it does mine.

Yes, they are! I live next to a forest so I get wood pigeons in my garden. They are gorgeous. I find their calls very relaxing. :)
