The starlings over the cornfields of Hadley, Massachusetts, sometimes achieve murmuration levels--I saw them do it Saturday, them moving together like a great whale at play. It was breathtaking. I went back yesterday with a camera but came too late in the day, and then again today, and was only a *little* too late, or they weren't in a mood to all rise (ALL RISE) and swoop, and then settle.

Also, maybe if I had turned the phone sideways it would have made a wider video? I am very new to the ways of the smartphone. (Video is 38 seconds)

Although I didn't catch the murmuration yesterday, I did get a photo of the sun like a pearl in the shell of the sky...

golden sunset

And then another of all the many colors sunset sky is heir to...

This and the sunset are very beautiful.

Very pretty. I love the middle image. I think it depends on your phone. The last time I took a video with the phone in "landscape", the video came out sideways. I say try it and see what happens!

The kids and I glimpsed some starlings in the neighbor's field the other day. I would have loved to stop and watch them, but we were on our way to Sprout's riding lesson. So thanks for letting me watch yours instead! :D

One surprise about moving to the Welsh border is that there are far fewer starlings than down south.

Very cool! Did you see the Planet Earth II episode with the starlings over Rome?

Incredible! I don't know if what you saw was similar, but I'd love to see something like that one day...
