A bit of fun from yesterday. Upset a flock of starlings while out walking and managed to grab a couple of shots as they flew off.

When zooming in on the camera screen I liked the patterns made by a few birds so split the flock up. (It looks better on the three individual prints up on the wall, but you can't all come round for a look as I'm nearly out of milk).

Took inspiration from my Hill Sheep image of many moons ago and upped the contrast to bleach out the sky while still retaining detail in the birds themselves.

Thanks for looking.

a much more interesting image than it first appears in the thumb, retaining detail and separation; reminds me of a painting I saw recently of people's movement taken from CCTV, that was set on a white canvas, with similar proportions
