I have a bit of a love affair with these birds, I love their intelligence









Heat haze is noticeable in the background

Wow, that first shot has a sureal look to it. I love it. It looks like it could be a movie poster for a Hitchcock remake of the birds. It really is outstanding.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The first impression viewing the shot was like an airforce lauching an attack, with jet fighters departing from an air base. The bird on the top of the crown was like a lieutenant colonel. The colour of the sky is intriguing,apocalyptic and devastating. The predators were ready for some action ...
