I like the contrast here between the gaunt, inorganic, linear, metal structures of the pylon and the small, rounded and very much alive birds – that’s “the big picture” here.

But do enlarge the image by clicking onto it twice in the usual way, to better see the massed ranks of these little birds clustered on the right side of the pylon – with all of their little beaks poking out.

There is another Starling image from this pylon here .

Other recent bird pictures are here: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 .

Technique: Z 6 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 280mm; 1600 ISO; Lightroom, starting at the Camera Neutral v2 profile; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Full Dynamic Harsh preset; Court Farm, southeast of East Huntspill, on the Somerset Levels; 25 Oct 2019.

Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Joe says the starlings are “clotted.” 😉


  2. Their little pointing beaks were what caught my eye as soon as I enlarged the photo. A few on the left aren’t as interested, but have been intrigued by something to the left. Hmmmmm? 🤔

    They’re great, aren’t they? I love the way they work together. I’ve seen them flock together en-masse on the structure of Aberystwyth pier during the early evening; quite a sight!


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
