Sometimes in nature things happen that seem too good to be true, ideal coincidences that strongly illustrate the appeal and marvel of the world around us.
One such episode took place over the Costa Brava, in Northeastern Spain, when a mass of starlings started to gather into a shape-shifting cloud, known as a murmuration. This phenomenon is a real spectacle, with hundreds, often thousands or more birds moving and twisting in what seems a coordinated, single organism that can rapidly change into some shocking shapes.
Professional Photographer Daniel Biber from Hilzingen, Germany existed when the starlings began to swirl and twist, probably the outcome of a predator such as a falcon or hawk being in the area. It was nearly supernatural that in reaction to the predator, the cloud of starlings ended up twisting and turning themselves into a giant, single bird, as if to state to their tormentor, “we are bigger than you.”
The images have actually earned Mr. Biber a prize in a global photography competition, however he didn’t realise that he had captured such distinct shots until later. “Just when I checked the photos on the computer system later, I realised exactly what formation the starlings had produced,” he informed the Daily Mail.” I was so concentrated on taking photos at the time that I hadn’t realised that the starlings
had created a huge bird in the sky. “It was a case of persistence pays off for Mr. Biber, who had attempted and stopped working to catch the starlings completely circulation before. “‘I have actually attempted to picture the starlings but it never worked out as well as I wished for,” he said. “‘I ultimately drove to the spot every day for four days in a row in order to record them. I selected a spot where I believed they would turn up and chose a coordinating foreground and background in order to put them in scene.”
