Day 51 — Starlings

Are you surprised to see this in 25' RADIUS? I am still inside my apartment — just pointing the camera out the window. It was dusk and the starlings began maniacally circling our building. On about their sixth circuit I captured this shot. Notice the ISO is ramped up for dusk so that I could use a fast shutter speed. I love the birds that appear as compact flying bullets.
