The touch of colour in the sky adds drama to this wonderful random pattern as the birds race and soar in the sky.

I tried to capture such an image as this once, and all I got for my efforts was a face full of you know what....... A really great study of this fascinating phenomenon.

I'm definitely seeing a creature leaping into the air - the glory of murmurations is the sense of the unity of the flock, one single mind.
Thanks for your very kind comment on my upload.
