Garden and Urban Birds. HONOURABLE MENTION.

Rosy Starling Pastor roseus. Jamnagar, Gujarat, India. Photographer: Yashodhan Bhatia, India. Category Garden and Urban Birds. HONOURABLE MENTION. Photographer’s Story: ‘I am a regular visitor to the backwaters of the Ujni Dam in Maharashtra, India. This winter water levels were very high and so a big flock of Rosy Starlings chose this place to roost in a place of safety. I made two trips to the area within 20 days to photograph the birds’ murmurations and roosting. I took this image using a slow shutter speed to create the feeling of movement in these flying birds.’ Nikon D5 with Nikon 600mm f/4 lens. 600mm focal length; 1/30 second; f/5.6; ISO 50.
