Default Probably...

...my best European Starling to date. At least, I think so.

I tend to agree with you, and Black Knight. Do any of your birds or other critters wind up in magazines? They should.

Thanks very much, Robert. Not really been "seriously" published. Just this little blurb in Birds & Blooms, December issue:

Very nice starling photo! Hope your northern flicker comes back, we have them around here and I think they are one of our more interesting birds.

You do a great job bringing out the beauty of this "common & ordinary" bird. Don't like to see the crowds of starlings, but do enjoy your sharp, well-lit and carefully composed portrait!

Thanks very much! This is one of those hard-to-pass-up shots, Mole. To be honest, I wait until I get the pose I want. Sometimes it just doesn't come. But, eventually, it happens. To say I'm thrilled with the K-30 would be an understatement. I now have the Sigma 170-500mm APO, but this was shot with the 55-300mm kit lens. I just found out it made POTD here.
