An opportunist makes a visit

Really a surprising beautiful creature the Starling.

Re: An opportunist makes a visit

Hi Huw - won't be doing them justice as I'm viewing on an IPod.... But I like the natural colours and square crop. Exposure looks great and focus on the eyes is spot on too. Composition wise, if I had to make a choice it would be the second, because the starling is looking out of the frame in number one. Both nice shots though.

Cheers,

Jon

Lovely birds, I don't know why they get such a bad press.

Re: An opportunist makes a visit

They're nice. I like the way the sun's glinting on the feathers and bringing out hints of purple and green.

You know, I hadn't realised starling have such viciously long beaks - with a point at the end too! They must hurt each other when they squabble.

Thanks Ellie , yes that beak looks like quite a weapon.
