CLOUDS OF STARLINGS

As the seasons change, 
the world's millions of starlings
migrate in giant flocks,
clouding the skies with dense
beautiful patterns (called murmurations),
seen here in Scotland near the English border
at dusk this past weekend.

They fly in huge swarms,
and navigate with undulating speed
without bumping into one another.

Amazing!

  12. Wonderful shots, Rick!
    I never had an opportunity to do pics like these, just fantastic!
    How the birds function as a whole remains a mystery to me although some scientists have tried to come up with explanations!
