Four Starlings…

A good few years ago M had gone back to Ireland for a month to see his parents and I had stayed at home.  One Saturday I decided to go to Liverpool to take photographs of architecture and general life.  Liverpool is a pool of things to see everywhere you turn.  So, lunch time came and I was walking south along Queens Dock and decided to go to McDonalds to eat.  Being a bright sunny day, the starlings were there waiting for people to drop food or feed them.  I had sat my camera on the table and was eating my fries.  More and more birds came over to see if I was feeding them.  I decided to break up the fries and gently throw them onto the next table where the birds were now gathering.  Seeing that they were all coming to the same spot I decided to turn my DSL camera to them and press the auto focus.  Again gently throwing fries to the table for them they all of a sudden arranged themselves in the position you can see from my photo, and I clicked the shutter and snapped this photo.  Needless to say, when I looked at the photo I decided to give them all the rest of the fries as I thought they had earned them.

I hope you like the result of my photo day.
