Shimmering colours in the right light Danny, you must get cold in your hide at the moment.
From what are you hiding I wonder? The chores that need doing maybe?

The beautiful colours of starlings are often overlooked because of their nuisance value, but you have captured this so well Grin

Excellent capture Dan. Very majestic. They have amazing colouring. Our garden is full of them but I am struggling to find the right spot to capture them properly.

Oh she's Ok but since we had a disagreement she has gone all to pieces. As she finds me irresistible no doubt she will be back once she pulls herself together.
