Sitting Pretty #MySundayPhoto
When only a preen will do!
Missed a bit!
Oi, where do you think you're going?!

One of the things that I love about my home office is that it is at the back of our house overlooking our garden and the hills beyond. There are some trees close by and the starlings regularly congregate there. During one of my breaks last week I picked up my camera and captured quite a bit of the action.

    I am a bird watcher from way back so these photos are just great to me. Such pretty birds.

    Starlings get such a bad press but I think they’re beautiful and you’ve proved I’m right! πŸ™‚ xox

    I am so jealous of bird ahots! I alkways want capture birds but they are just too elusive for me. These are awesome photos as you have captured their grace =) #mysundayphoto

    These are such beautiful pictures. I love the light shining on the bird’s feathers.

    Such beautiful photos! I love nature on the doorstep. We have it all in Bath, especially naughty finches tapping at my windows!

    How wonderful you have the opportunity Victoria. The colours you’ve captured are stunning (love the one of the starling coming in to land).

    The only time I see starlings is at Hengistbury Head outside the cafe where they perch on the tables helping themselves to crumbs.

    I love the first photo, the colours in it’s feathers are beautiful

    Thank you for linking up

    I love that final photo with one starling flying past and the other watching it. Beautiful photos – so detailed and I never realised just how beautiful a starling’s colouring was before.

    Well captured, really beautiful pictures! I remember when starlings were so common, but you don’t see them quite as much nowadays do you? E

    Fantastic photos! I particularly love the way you’ve captured all the colour on the starling’s breast.
    I’m very jealous of your location. My home office is upstairs at the front of my house with the world’s smallest window. My magnolia tree is right outside it and it blocks the view of anything else!

    Such gorgeous pictures, I love them!

    Hi Victoria, stunning photos of a Starling! Love the first one where the oily colours in it’s plumage are obvious. If I had an office with a view I’d never get anything done!

    I’m sure your photos get more and more stunning each week the colours and detail here are amazing

    How lucky to have so much nature just behind your office door. I do love the capture of the bird and how beautiful is its colouring, transcendent almost.
