Birds of a feather...
On my way home last night, I couldn't believe the number of birds that were perched on the powerline. I had to stop the car and try to get a shot. If I had only had my camera with a telephoto lens on it!! I've learned my lesson!? (Learning curve has been a bit steep lately.) The iPhone camera shot had to be sufficient for this moment.
As soon as I got out of the car to possibly get a little closer, the birds flew up in a wave of blackness and swirled like a ribbon around the olive tree-line several times. It was quite a dance.
I'm assuming these feathered ones are gathering for their journey further south for the winter months. I hope I see them again...I'll be more prepared.
