Absolutely Stunning Video..... Murmuration* ..enjoy


*Murmuration....A chance encounter and shared moment with one of natures greatest and most fleeting phenomena.

A collection of starlings is called a murmuration. Liberty Smith and Sophie Windsor Clive unexpectedly caught a rather large and exquisitely balletic murmuration on video while canoeing on the River Shannon in Ireland.

I've seen starlings wheel and dance before, but never such a huge group as that. That is magical. You don't get to see stuff like that more than once or twice in a lifetime.

You think it's real, and not faked?
