I don't know what happened to this little starling. I didn't attempt to touch him, but I easily could have -- I've never seen one this close before! This photo was taken within a foot of where he was sitting in the grass under a tree. He wasn't happy with my presence, but he made no move to fly away. (Double-click on the photo to bring up the full sized image. Look at all the colors in his feathers!)
As a rule I detest starlings, but it's hard not to feel sorry for an individual injured creature.
If you are following along with our challenge you will notice that I have added 2 new participants to our list on the right sidebar. We have seen so many different images already. I am especially enjoying getting to know people through their photography style.
