Seeing the Tor behind the flock makes this image a little different and more interesting.

One of nature true wonders , as said murmerations are a rarity these days and oh so special when witnessed . A sterling capture . A touch more to the base to anchor it would have been nice. Next time try one at 1/3 second .
