I don't actually approve of starlings as they are an introduced pest here, but yesterday's photo and today's are fascinating. Great captures, even surreal.

More excellent nature Ron, and I agree with you about the noise of the wings as they weave about.

Almost looks as if the starlings are facing off the peregrine, I'm sure that's not the case.

A fascinating abstract.
I, too, love to play 'spot the Peregrine' when I see a murmuration. Smile
