Starling
Photo of the Week 

Photo Information
A bit ironic this one. I have been trying to get an acceptable starling shot for a couple of years - Brighton is fuill of them but they are difficult to photograph. Finally got a shot from indoors!

Super job.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Well deserved POTW, an uncommon image of a common bird.

Smashing... shows the true irridescence of a starling!
