A very impressive picture! I had never seen such a photo on TN before! It must have been amazing to whitness such an extraordinary defensive behavior live. And you've managed to capture it perfectly. It shows clearly how the little starlings group to create the illusion of a much larger animal and confuse the hawk. The composition is great and simple and the clear sky makes an ideal background. I love the way you isolated the hawk from the flock making them look like two different entities. It is useless to speak about sharpness, color and exposure since you proved great skills in handling them. The dark frame compliments the shot very well! In my oppinion, this shot could easily be a winner in a photo contest! Congratulations for this outstanding picture!
