Brilliant! The light and clarity are supreme. The detail is wonderful. smile
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much for your kind remarks, Frances. I was very lucky with the light that day.
smile He reminds me of a soldier marching back and forth- thus your title is equally as great as the shot!
Beverly Andrighetti: Many thanks, Elizabeth. A marching soldier was exactly what he resembled.

Beverly Andrighetti: Haha, I see what you mean, Robbyne. Thank you very much.

A fine shot indeed, he looks very alert
Beverly Andrighetti: Very alert, indeed, Chris. Probably on the lookout for that stray cat that visits our garden.

I like the clarity with which you have caught all those speckles, Beverly
Beverly Andrighetti: I was surprised that it came out that clear, Lisl, as I shot this through a rather dirty window.

My goodness, you got the greatest shot of the starling. Should be in a bird book.
Beverly Andrighetti: What a wonderful compliment. Thank you very much, Mary.

Marching up and down perhaps Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: Doing exactly that, Chad.
Starling guard uniforms are very attractive aren't they. Super shot Bev
Beverly Andrighetti: I agree, they do have very attractive uniforms, Janet.
What an extremely good image Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: You are most kind, Brian. Thank you.
Great picture Beverly. We seldom see them these days. At one time our garden used to be full of them squabbling!
Beverly Andrighetti: We have seen quite a few starlings in our garden this year, Bill.
