"Very Impressive Starling Murmurations" by Daniel Biber
This series of images was captured in a 10-second window on the 31st, December 2016 near Sant Pere Pescador in Catalonia, Spain. For years I have observed huge flocks of starlings on the Costa Brava. It took me several days to scout out the location where the starlings gather at sunset to roost. I shot thousands of pictures and had the great luck to capture the moment that the murmuration took on the shape of a large flying bird - no retouches necessary! The shape then dissipated, and the birds began to reshape ending up as another impressive bird shape.
