Taken earlier in the summer on Crosby sea front, these had to be the tamest Starlings I've ever seen, great fun and very entertaining.

And although the wife is also a keen bird photographer, she's not a fan of anything flying too close........... so she did quite well :)

D500, Sigma 150-600c
1/1250th, f8, ISO 320 @ 165mm

All C&C welcome, thanks for looking

A bird on hand, is better than two in the bush.
Nice take.

Bother - someone beat me to it ...

This is fantastic focusing and well timed. Perfect shutter speed and a well timed shot.

Very nice shot. I am surprised the birds in the wild can be cooperative like this.

Lovely shot. Had starlings do the same at Lee on Solent, the were nicking my chips before the gulls could get them. I never thought about using a model to get a shot. Superb foresight and skills on this.
