Little Jewels ... Starlings :)
Starlings, eh? Thanks. I'll remember that.

I was driving through some farmland and I bet there were 5,000 of them in a field and structures around that field. I stayed close to the car and they didn't seem to mind me much when I was there, but the group would stay 40-50 meters away. If I tried moving closer, they'd back up to maintain that distance. I finally spooked them and, whoosh, gone. All of them. Empty field after that. That's what that last shot was from. Autofocus didn't know what to do with them.

Here are my favorites from that session.
