Hello Starling
“Between October and the start of March, thousands of starlings make their home in Brighton and the surrounding areas,” says Your Shot photographer Kevin Meredith. “Just before sunset they form huge murmurations and flock about Brighton Pier before roosting under the Pier.”

Growing Strong
A bonsai tree grows out of a dead tree in the middle of a river. “This little tree reminds me that you can grow and blossom under impossible circumstances with a little bit of determination,” says Your Shot photographer Sam Snaps.

Beautiful Bird
A red-tailed comet displays its stunning, iridescent feathers as it feeds. Its deeply-forked tail makes it one of the most distinctive and well-known hummingbird species. “Your perspective really captures his feathers in their full beauty” commented Your Shot associate photo editor Kristen McNicholas. “I love how symmetrical your frame is and how I can immediately focus on the beauty of this bird!”

Penguins’ Paradise
A small colony of penguins lives near St. Kilda’s pier in Melbourne, Australia. “Every night sometime after sunset, the adults of the colony will come home to nest,” says Your Shot photographer Doug Gimesy.
“Occassionally a few can be found standing on the top of the rocks, calling for their mate, drying themselves, or simply watching the world from a different perspective – above the water.”

Rise Above
Just the tops of San Francisco’s tallest buildings are visible above the fog, backlit by a dramatic sunrise. “What a magical morning this was!” remembers Your Shot photographer Aya Okawa.

Tree Or Island?

Sometimes, seemingly boring and uninteresting places have the considerable potential. It is the ordinary water reservoir, located next to an industrial plant. It looks quite ordinary from the ground, but after rising into the air and changing the perspective, suddenly the pipe which goes into the small island, starts looking like a tree. Dark water and birds float on the surface resemble a night sky with stars. An unusual picture in an ordinary place. Shot on DJI Mavic Pro, DNG, little postprocess in Lightroom, 90m AGL. Cracow, Poland
