Don't talk with your mouth full................this young Starling has a long way to go in the table manners department............
My thanks to EileenH for her User Award on the wasp..........
Absolutely fantastic! Love it!
You always pull such lovely and surprising images from the hat Julia !! Excellent !!
Great title for this wonderful image
Well done again, Julia.
I very much like the way you obscure the background.
Good detail too - I can see its tonsils.
Superb timing and lovely detail.
Another super image with a great title.
I think this youngster is giving you a mouthful of abuse for photographing him/her Julia! Superbly timed to catch it with a beakful!
A splendid shot and good title.

All said above...once again you amaze us all
just like some guest at a wedding that i took today. Using their internet at the moment...
It has often been said that a good title sells an image, you've certainly sold this one Julia...
You must spend hours getting these great shots Julia, im glad you do as I love them.
Not a good look!
I keep wondering what you will come up with next as your bird images are always that bit different.
Obviously had never been instructed in bird table manners, but what a great capture as it hurls abusr roughly in your direction.
Cracking image and perfect timing too
Wow..another 1st class shot and title
It's a great take - as Ronnie says you always come up with something other than the norm in your bird images.
Unusual and well captured image
The starling in the ivy now,
For to amuse his dear,
Mimics the dog, the cat, the cow,
Blackbird and Chanticleer.
The starling's an accomplished mime:
Between his love-making
He solaces her brooding-time
By many a madcap thing.
He is the saw, the spade, the scythe,
He rings the dinner bell;
Chuckles of laughter, small and blithe,
Of self-laudations tell.
Now by the battle-field he mocks
As though 'twere but a game,
Thunder with which the belfry rocks
And the great bursts of flame.
Till when the merriment will pall
He turns to love again,
Calling his love-sick gurgling call
Above the dying men.
Who knows what dream the starling weaves
Of boyhood, soft and clean?
A small room under golden eaves
To which the sun looks in.
The starling's talking in the thatch,
Bidding the boy arise;
And the door's opening on the latch
To show -- his mother's eyes.
Lovely shot Julia and love the title. Cathy
Well timed, great shot,
A delightful capture well done
So well timed, cracking title, you did it again, got both spot on, capture and title, well done indeed.
Julia, everyone has said everything so I will just give it my award!
Sorry Julia, my BlackBerry won't let me vote or give award at the moment!
Well timed and veryg good details and colours
Suprbly timed and exposed Julia.
A great capture Julia, a great title to go with the image
Stunning Julia !! Love the title..the detail, and birdy's attitude, is superb
Just like a starling, manner's wise! cute image!
You must spend lots of time with your birds to get these great captures
Intense, noisy and greedy...
Amusing and very clever shot with apt title
great timing lovely shot good dof. christine
Smashing shot Julia, made me smile
A wonderful capture Julia. Good timing too.
Tut tut, you can't take him anywhere, just like my partner, who needs a big napkin at home!
Saw this today and thought of you.
Top quality image.
Lovely capture. Can I ask what lens you used for this with your 7D and the focal length. I'm always interested in what lenses are used on certain images. Thank you.
