Throwing all kinds of shapes!

20th February 2012
Returned from Cork today , so again spent a lot of time on the road. I arrived back in Mayo just after sunset and about fifteen miles from home I noticed a flock of starlings high in the sky . So I stopped the car and watched as they flew forward and back throwing all kinds of shapes! It was quite dark as the sun had already set, so I set the camera to iso2500 aperature priority and +1 exposure, with an 80 - 200 mm lens and took a number of pictures. Given those settings and the lack of light I was never going to get top quality pictures but I was happy with the results all the same. And I was entertained by them for about fifteen minutes.
