Ruddy Ground Dove (Columbina talpacoti)

Sometimes a bird photographer has no choice to photograph a life bird. Man made elements are surrounding us and now are part of our life. For me as a traveling birder/photographer there had no time to make nice setups and attract birds to land on it so I photographed what nature offered me on my way. This bird was sitting on the wire of a fence next to the dirt road off the Palenque ruins where I was looking for lifers.
