Foreboding Aerial Photography
Starling Murmurations Create Startling Omens in the Sky

Starling flocks gather every February and November and create a beautiful natural phenomenon of starling murmurations. While this seems quite elegant for some onlookers, it’s also eerily reminiscent of an apocalyptic omen.

It is still unknown how these lovely birds can create such massive coordinated images in the sky. According to Wired Magazine, birds stay close to each other for security reasons and thus, move and change directions and speed according to their neighbor. Regardless of how these starling birds actually do it, these amazing patterns in the sky make it hard not to think of swarming locusts that deplete crops, trampling dinosaurs, alien stingrays, hurricanes and dissipating portals. Captured at their perfect moments, these starling murmurations illustrate an aerial elegance that emanates effortless natural beauty.
