A flock of Starlings Fly overhead.

My thanks go to.. After the rain... for taking me up to see these birds, for without her knowledge and assistance I would never have found a vantage point.

Thank you Joan.

Wonderful shot: the way these patterns swirl and move is so good to see, although I haven't seen the event up her of late.
Have you tried a movie of this?
