A Murmuration of Starlings
Murmuration from Sophie Windsor Clive on Vimeo.
I had to share this video, which was all over the web a few months ago, because I find it so beautiful and almost other-worldly at times. On Vimeo the description under the video reads: "A chance encounter and shared moment with one of the greatest and most fleeting phenomena." What is most compelling to me is first, that this video drew 4.5 million views during a two-week period, and second why that is. Clearly, this amazing natural wonder captivates and moves people. We should cherish the delicate balance of life on earth and what it provides.
