I had a go at "Medium sized" birds in flight this weekend.

This image of a Starling, a bird that comes in for some harsh press at times, shows that these birds have some lovely details and colours...

Great shot, was this taken with a remote sensor and high speed flash?

Thanks for your kind comments.

@annettep38 I used 1/3200 @f9 for this image.

@Stenk No. No flash in this image and no remote sensor. I did trigger the camera remotely but I was watching the action and pressing the remote shutter release button when I wanted to take a picture.

Thanks for your interest,

Austin
