Unlike Klaus' beautifully executed example above, I'll offer the snap below. Fortunately, it is rare for our backyard to be the landing zone for > 1000 European Starlings! I must say that this afternoon's scene was kinda ominous in an Old Testament, Charlton Heston-as-Moses, Plague-descending way. Thinking that I'd score a decent CS contribution, I tried a stealthy approach: I silently (?) exited from the side door on our garage, with camera at the ready, mentally composing the image, pausing to think about how to frame everything, before my shout would send them blurring gloriously into the sky . . .

Of course not. :eek:

Several fence-sitting sentinels took note of my egress from the garage immediately and the entire crowd took off. I squeezed off four shots, all of which featured one of our clotheslines, necessitating a heavy crop.:D Thanks, Klaus, for another great CS theme.

Hi Eric, your second name is not Alfred, or... ???
I meant Hitchcock.

What a wonderful example

Oh, hey, I almost forgot about this week's topic, and what do you know, I've got a freshly-shot image to share! (The image also is in my Week 4 in the 52 Week Thread, but it really needs to be in here as well.). I was thinking about what fun it is to do abstracts with ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and since I have a handy little slow-shutter app in my iPhone I looked around for a likely candidate, found something, fired up the iPhone and here we go:

Ha! Roland I know this feeling very well. You've forgotten the dry eyes after working 8 hours in front of a PC...

But, you've shown excellent pictures again.

Thank you
Klaus
