A MURMURATION of starlings takes flight — in the shape of a bird.
Photographer James Crombie said it took 50 visits and 500 snaps to get the perfect shot.

The birds were pictured over Lough Ennell, Co Westmeath, in Ireland.
James said: “I’m usually a sports photographer, so for a while I’ve had a bit of time to think about other things. I had an image in my head.
“I could see they were making shapes. I kept going back, to get the image I had in my head.”
James, who runs Inpho Photography in Ireland, was named the ‘Press Photographer of the Year’ 2021 in Dublin last month.
