Very nice, not the common shot but a unique way of looking at the scene. Nice diagonal line, too, great composition.

This intriguing one of a kind photo works on so many levels. I love the way my eye travels around the elements of it's composition and the picture itself has a natural story book quality that is rare stuff!

Clever shot. I had a few Starlings here this morning. They can be a pest, but really are a beautiful bird.

I think if I was a starling, I'd find that swan reflection startling!

A very cool shot, JM!

The juxtaposition makes for a neat photo! I thinks starlings with their speckled plumage this time of the year are really handsome birds!

I've often heard of starlings but never knew what they looked like. They are very pretty.

I can see why the are called Starlings. There little bodies are as if covered in a galaxy of stars! You did an excellent job conveying that. I love the large reflection of the swan and how the image is bisected diagonally. It adds another dimension to the story.

Great capture! Love the swans' reflection!

Great shot. Very intriguing. The contrast of the swan in the water and the starlings on the concrete is very interesting.
