[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is nature as it is "happening". I don't know if we're on the migratory path of these blackbirds but I felt like I was in the Alfred Hitchcock movie "The Birds". I was sitting in my computer room when I heard a lot of screeching and flapping and went to a window at the back of the house. The lawn and sky were filled with these birds. By the time I grabbed my camera and went out to the deck many of them had moved on but I did get some "in transit". So this is my contribution for Friday 13th 2009. Tomorrow I will post another photo of them on the ground.

Wow—now that is a lot of bird! I thought the photo would be better served without the deck so I did a workshop. Hope you like it.

This is one of those times when you don't have any time to think about how to frame the photo. You are just fortunate to have had your camera at the ready to get this shot! Great reflexes.
