A massive flock of starlings circling over a marsh at the Pingree Grove Forest Preserve near Pingree Grove in Kane County, Illinois. The vortex of black birds twisted and turned the entire time my wife and I were there, making a loud racket while so doing.
I took several shots each time the avian tornado approached our position, and this one best establishes the density of the flock.
Just glad they weren't directly overhead.
