Now you see me...

By Lillian  
Then it's gone, this starling was a little worried as was
on it's own visiting the allotment! seconds later.. no sign of him

I was lucky to get, and in the sunlight he showed off the
beautiful plumage colours

I hope you enjoy seeing this as much as I did taking the image

As you can tell by the shadows really sunny

Take care

Amazing - he doesn't look real! We have starlings but they don't look nearly as artistic!

You have captured the shining plumage perfectly Lillian, a lovely capture.

I have tried three times to PM you to thank you for awarding for my Charlie Puss photo but each time it has said Delivery Stopped. No idea why. Anyway I am thanking you now, it is much appreciated as always.
