Beautiful starling! It is amazing how lovely these common birds are. I like the DOF and how it focuses the eye. I also liek the diagonal composition and the almost monocromatic feel.

It really is a rather attractive bird despite its negative reputation here in Oregon. This is another sharp and well composed image. I really like all the brown tones with the touch of irridecent green.

i know that starlings are not popular birds, at least not in the U.S.,
but I find them very beautiful.
Your shot really does justice to their good looks, showing their markings and colours and iridescence beautifully.
Merci pour le partage. : )

Hi Joseph, these starlings can be quite attractive with their patterns and their shiny metalic feathers. Well captured, TFS

Another simply wonderful photo from you!
This fluffed-up starling here looks terrific and you managed to captuire it with pleny of razor-sharp details and in a superb warm light.
The colors on its feathers looks brilliant and the POV here is excellent. Also the DOF is exceptional, blurring the BG very nicely.
One more thing ot add: the composition - truely splendid (diagonal branch, plenty of space in the direction of the sight of the bird...impeccable) !
BRAVO and TFS

You have proved over and over that you are a "mamba" with these small birds and your snowscapes. This one is no exception as you show this bird with exquisite beauty.
The details you've captured are excellent and the colours are just stunning. The exposure for this shot was perfectly handled and the BG with its very soft focus is complimentary to the subject. The composition is first class with the angled branch, the off-centre bird, and the good measures of the cropping.
Very well done and TFS.

What a lovely shot you have created. I like its pleasant drown colour palette, nice diagonal composition, delicate lighting and beautiful resting birdy. Your cropping and framing are very impressive as well as the POV and exactly selected DOF.
My best wishes and TFS.
