I flew into Denver Colorado today....... Bizarrely....... Its warmer here than Miami....... really a lot warmer........ But thats not hard........ I watched the movie Whiteout on the flight...... a woman cop at the South Pole........ it reminded me of being in Miami........ One character loses fingers to frost bite ....... I think....... after staying in the River Palace Hotel Downtown Miami..........

For some reason I have got a lot more interested in making shots of birds recently.......... maybe its cos of all the flying I am doin myself......... :-))

When I was in Miami.......... I made this image of birds......... it was dusk the birds were all massing above the main shopping parade........ probably just roosting in the trees......... but maybe they were getting ready to fly further South......... as lets face it Miami just was'nt warm enough for them (or me) ........... certainly the way they flocked, swirled together then all landed then all took off together reminded me of the behavior of flocks of starlings in my home town of Birmingham in Britain just before they were heading South for the winter.

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXX
