Birds taking flight

I was walking around along the waterfront in Tarrytown, NY. As I was approaching this tree I noticed that it was full of small birds (I have no idea what they were). I was still quite a distance away when they took off en masse. I was lucky that I had already raised my camera in anticipation of taking a picture and was able to get something.

I quite like it. It something about the mass of birds, the fact that they’re blurred combined with the delicate branches with their red berries that appeals to me. There’s something oriental about it.

Taken with a Sony A6000 and Canon 50mm f1.4 LTM (I think).
