A Bird on the Hand.......

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 :)

All C&C welcome, thanks for looking

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.

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.
Perfectly shot Phill.
Very nice shot. I am surprised the birds in the wild can be cooperative like this.
Fantastic image! Well done. :)
Excellent capture, Phill.
