Paintbrush of Birds



These birds were seen at a train station in Rome. The fluid sweep of this flock is so beautiful and fascinating.

Perhaps a good illustration of "chaordic" too.

I think these might have been starlings, and if so, you would want to watch this next clip about starlings in England.

they remind me of Crill ( Krill?) a feeder fish for dolphin and other water mammals. The dolphin and other fish chase the fish into these very large balls ( hundreds of feet large) and then as the fish try to eat and the krill try to escape they morph into these beautiful calligraphic ribbons of fish....

I live by the lake and have seen the starlings play like this. It is very very beautiful . Thanks so much for sharing.
