A couple of days ago, as I walked from the parking lot to the MAX station, I heard a mourning dove. The previous morning, I’d heard a dove and quickly found it, not in the trees, but on the power lines. This day, I didn’t see it on the power lines or in the trees.
With a little more searching and looking from another angle, I found the dove on the pole. He was peering down, watching the commuters.
This picture is interesting because all the diagonal lines make the pole look bent and leaning.1 It’s actually straight up and down and not bent. Looking at the sky to either the left or right of the pole seems to change the perceived bend.
