Camera: Nikon D2X
Focal Length: 45mm
Shutter Speed: 1/30 sec
Note: Chris Lloyd took this photo of a group of Starlings roosting and flying together. The organic shape that these birds create is so elegant. It is amazing when all the birds move in a ocean-like wave and dance carelessly together. The dark blue sky with the silhouettes of the birds creates a magnificent capture. You can view and purchase Chris’s work on his website, http://www.c-m-l.com.
Tip: To give the birds a slight motion trail, a shutter speed (exposure) of 1/30 of a second was used. A tripod is used when shooting slower shutter speeds to avoid unintentional blurriness.
