Photographer Captures The Beauty Of A Starling Murmuration

Birds of a feather, flock together. It’s not just an idiom to explain how people of a certain character or nature tend to form a friendship or relationship. Sometimes, it can be quite literal. All you need to do is look to the sky. There is nothing quite as majestic as seeing a group of birds collectively flying through the air at once.

Starlings are one such bird that flies together and creates beautiful displays.
