If you’ve been on Facebook at all in the past two weeks, chances are you’ve seen one of the most remarkable nature phenomena ever to go viral on video. It’s a two-minute short by two young women who are London independent filmmakers, made from footage shot spontaneously during a canoe trip on the River Shannon in Ireland. They submitted “Murmuration” to the World Wildlife Fund film competition ‘Life, Nature and You. Make the Connection.’ In case you’ve missed it till now, watch and be wowed.
If you, like me, wonder how on earth such a wonder happens, check out this fascinating story from Wired, The Startling Science of a Starling Murmuration.
Yours in awe,
