February Photograph - Birds of a Feather....



When I got to the trail this morning to walk I heard this absolute vibrating symphony of sound. It was this whole flock of birds roosting in six or seven trees. They were wonderful. I was able to shoot several photographs before they flew off to greener pastures.

That's great. I had a similar experience last year; two trees hosting who knows how many starlings. It was breathtaking. I have to remember to start taking the camera when I walk the dog - of course at that hour, I'm lucky I remember the dog!

What a wonderful sight! Elizabeth, I love what you've done with your digital enhancements. The photo really captures a "feeling"! Hugs, Terri xoxo

PS I hope the storm misses you completely.

Love your photo...don't you just love those special moments in time and you get a chance to take a pic?

I love this photo, Elizabeth! You asked about my cupboard door--where it will go. Actually, I have an art fair coming up next month, and all of these things I've been making are for my show. I can't wait to get out and see old friends that I only see a couple of times a year, (the fair is out of town, so it's a nice little get away)

Beautiful photo. Great enhancements. Perhaps they were singing for spring.

Lovely photo, Elizabeth! May I ask what digital adjustments you added, and how you achieved the edge look? I'd love to try it myself.

Oh my goodness, you have incredible Photoshop skills - this photo is gorgeous! It looks like the most beautiful lifelike painting. I might "borrow" your colour scheme... : )
