Fascinating, aren’t they? Community, personal space, family, individuality… so many themes this flock of birds makes me ponder. But mostly the beautiful geometry as they jostle for every possible space on the line.

    They really are fascinating, Nicole! We’ve had them (swallows) congregating for over a month and their numbers increase every day!

  • Everyone here agrees that they are flocking at least a month earlier than normal. Hmmm. While shooting a foggy valley yesterday morning, I was honored to be there for the beautifully choreographed liftoff of a flock of Canada Geese. Amazing!
