Mourning dove

A friend of mine Dave Danehower over in the states posted this photo on facebook today. I looked at it and found it aesthetically pleasing but was puzzled to what it actually was, I assumed it was a fossil of some sort and asked him. To my surprise it turns out this is the impression of a Mourning dove that has been imprinted in the snow after some sort of crash landing, possibly after a raptor attack or some such incident. I think it captures a moment in time. A moment of drama and beauty…..It left quite an impression on me…groan ..I will get my coat…
