Starling Close Ups

On my travels I recently saw a group of Starlings that hang around a car park, they wait for food scraps and I just happened to have a few slices of bread with me. As they were coming so near to the car I thought I would take some close-ups of the various plumages that they were showing. Being a common species I think they are quite overlooked and thought of as a drab black bird, these shots show how colourful they are with some lovely iridescent colours and the white spots of their winter plumage.

All great shots, but for me the final image is the stand-out image.
