Was the starling still alive when the sparrowhawk flew off with it?
Must have been quite a racket.
Very powerful series.

Great shots!


They are occasional, the last time was January.

I only got this because I am WFH due to COVID-19. I had just started working in the study when my wife who is washing up in the kitchen overlooking the garden called me, so I quickly grab some kit and take some shots. Makes you wonder what you miss when no one is looking.

The starling was making a hell of a racket all this time, I left them to it as I didn't want to disturb too much. But miniuts later shots from an upstairs window the Starling seemed to be dead and was being plucked. Not sure if it was consumed on top of my hedge.

This is one of those shots that came out better than expected. The results I got when shooting this sculpture called Mother Earth, overlooking the Potomac River in Georgetown, was a lucky accident as a result of the cloud patterns. Had it been a grey day or a cloudless sky the results would have been less interesting IMHO. As you can see, when standing at the proper angle the sculpture defines a woman's face in the sky to the right of it. Most of the time, images taken here result in featureless faces. That day, however the clouds cooperated! Note the eye area and upper lid with some shape and texture, the flared nostrils and the definition of the bottom of the nose., the well defined lips, and the tree branches and leaves framing the face like hair.

Ah, cool, very interesting. Thanks for the explanation. I can't help but wonder how we know the face is a woman's.

The title of the sculpture is "Mother Earth", so it seems likely the face would represent a woman rather than a man. It's part of the Mother Earth Project which has put similar sculptures in cities around the world to promote sustainability of earths resources.

Oh, I see. Faces can look ungendered when there is no reference like long hair. Yet this one does look like a woman's face. I was just pondering why that would be. There must be subtle hints there. The sculpture is well done.

A couple of recent shots. Not the best. The bird was over 200 yards away and add in operator errors... Anyway, minor cropping done. There is about 2 seconds between these frames.
