A primary quality of animals like birds is flocking together. The only exception to this rule is perhaps man.
Beautiful elements and wonderful Fall scene! Envying the birds' ability to fly. Wondering how they can rest on that barbed wire? Unique white picket fence also,...pretty.
Flight is such a miraculous event. That animals can launch themselves into the sky never ceases to amaze me. In this shot we have birds - which are often considered pests - in different states of being airborne. By capturing such a diverse group of starlings, Mr O'Neill (or Mr Azizikhangheh - I am not sure which) has transformed the ugly duckling into a swan.
The cool pastel colours are quite soothing. This is a photo that makes me smile.

It's remarkable how the birds were looking in the same direction except for one.
I tend to agree with Alexa Keefe, mundane elements and yet an out of the ordinary result.
@Chudamani Akavaram The exception is only pretendence.
