This bird was so cold that it did not move at all when I got close. Temperatures below zero kept it there! This is the other side of a white winter in Athens.
YOU ARE ALL WELCOME

Poor thing. They can't build fires for warmth in cold temps.

@Ana Lúcia: OBRIGADO ANA
Nice close up and detail. The dove is in the sun and that may not be warm enough. Makes me wish there was something I can do. It is surprising to see such icicles in Athens.

@isabel: -4 TO -7 to be exact, cool fresh greetings from Athens
Beautifull picture and composition of this bird with stalactite of ice just behind. It's cold but it's fat... so i think it can stay without eating a couple of days..... even if there is still a lot of snow in Athens !!!

@Evelyne Dubos: these birds are SURVIVORS, REGARDS D
Its misfortune was your luck because the shot is excellent!!!Not only the bird, but also the blurred icicles, too!

@Japanalia: blush-blush blush you are kind
Nice close-up! The icicles look so daunting for the bird. Hopefully the bird got cover before itr was too late. I was also surprised by the low temps in Greece.
