The video below is the result of being in the right place, at the right time.
Irish filmmakers Sophie Windsor Clive and Liberty Smith were able to capture this “Murmuration” – defined as a flock of starlings – while canoeing on the River Shannon.
It’s amazing how these birds create beautiful patterns in the sky, some in-synch, others starting a new formation on their own. It makes one realize that no matter how much we try to control it, nature is still remarkably unpredictable.
