Starlings at Dusk 2 (GIF)

The first real snow came yesterday and in late afternoon a large flock of starlings were braving the wet snow and wind, grazing the tops of trees and  falling like leaves from branches.

(I hope the GIF isn’t too annoying, it would be nice to be able to click on it and make it stop! Oh well…)

Looking through the windshield on a rainy afternoon …

I made some photographs outside of the car, too, but it was this view through  wavering raindrops that truly caught my eye.

It’s not very green here yet but we are getting there.
