Nature Through My Lens

Against the Sun

All day today, we have had a huge flock of Starlings in the field across from our house!  Here’s a shot of part of the flock against the late afternoon sun.

  3. That is a beautiful photo! 🙂 You may already know that here in their native habitat, starlings are declining rapidly. We still have flocks that form displays over the sea, though.

    • Adele, Hi! We still have lots of them! In fact I’ve never seen as big a group as this one. It was fun to watch them!

  4. Last year, I had a flock of starlings descend on our front lawn; so many it kind of scared me. The whole area was overtaken by them but in a matter of minutes they were all gone. I never forgot the feeling of seeing so many all at once and the photos I took did not show the numbers. Framed as yours are, they are beautiful.
