Red -winged Starling

By Gezina  
Thank you for your encouringing c'c on the "Humble offering" much appreciated.
Thought I'll share another safari shot today, this is a common resident but I've not encoutered them in the Kruger National Park before and these bird was quite skittish - found out seconds late that they had every reason to be as the Yellow-billed Kite had some target practise on them - Ina

For a hand held shot at that range Ina this is a real cracker. Excellent exposure to keep all the detail in the black plumage Grin:
