Beautiful and amazing things happen by chance all the time in nature. A large group of starlings was seen flying above the Costa Brava region in northern Spain, according to local media. Seeing something like this in person is just astounding. It is absolutely incredible that hundreds or perhaps thousands of birds can morph into bizarre forms in synchrony.
It seemed as though the starlings had appeared out of nowhere, spinning and twisting. According to Hilzingen photographer Daniel Biber, this is how they behave when they sense an approaching predator. Eventually, the starling cloud condensed into a single, massive bird. They were implying that they were greater than the predator that had tortured them.

#1 There are times in nature when things happen that seem impossible.
In a photographic contest held Mr. Biber came away with first-place honors. However, he was completely unaware that he had captured such breathtaking rare photos. His explanation was that he just become aware of the starlings’ structure after seeing the photographs on his computer. Instead of seeing the starlings forming a large bird in mid-air, he was too preoccupied taking pictures to notice.
#2 These rare photos of starling murmurations were captured by photographer Daniel Biber after he spent four days attempting to catch them.
Despite the fact that Mr. Biber’s attempts to capture the starlings in flight were unsuccessful, he persisted in his efforts until he was successful. It’s been a challenging effort for him to take down starlings for a long time. It had taken him four days of traveling in the same general region before he was able to capture them. It was important to him that the foreground and background he chose were suitable for their place in the scenario.
