Baby starling in our date palm

By fotobee  
Tulbagh South Africa

A baby starling in our date palm. This was taken at extreme range, about 40 meters, and handheld. The segment of the photo was enlarged about 3.5 times, giving a magnification about 6500 mm (apparent 35 mm magnification). By eye, it appeared indistinguishable to me, and I did not know whether it was a mouse or bird. I took the shot for fun, and, on enlargement, it was the starling !!

Many, many thanks go to lillian (Lillian King) who has awarded the Hibiscuc photo her esteemed UA. Also, many thanks to all the Readers who viewed, voted for and commented on it ! Thank you !.

Have an excellent day

Best regards
