Starling Murmuration

Early evening, just before dusk was the best time to see these amazing thousands upon thousands of starling murmurations creating a remarkable display of motion, shapes, movements, and their incredible speed of changing directions in a fraction of a second and it all done as a teamwork. I can’t help to stop and think of how each bird know what to do, where to move, and how do they avoid the risk of colliding with each other. It left me in an awe-inspiring moment to witness an extraordinary natural phenomenon.
