Do you know what a murmuration is?

I ran across this video by Liberty Smith and Sophie Windsor Clive this morning and decided it just had to be shared.  I had never heard of a murmuration nor have I ever witnessed one.  Can you imagine seeing such a thing?  How would you feel if you were standing amidst such an event? We often talk about something being awesome but this brings a whole new dimension to the concept of awe-some, wouldn’t you agree?

I find this to be absolutely beautiful, simply amazing!  If I were to find myself in the midst of such an event, I think I would stand there in complete fascination, overwhelmed and totally amazed probably feeling a twinge of fear here and there all mixed in with a sense of excitement and exhilaration at the never ending wonders of this planet.  So many things we never see, and yet they’re out there for us to discover and enjoy…

 

 

How fabulous that these two adventurous women brought along a camera and shared this experience so we could also enjoy it!  Thanks to Liberty and Sophie!

One thing I am convinced of…if I was witnessing such an event live, there would not be another thought going through my mind.  That would definitely put me totally in the moment!  How would you feel?

  5. :) It’s fun eh? I realized this morning that I have actually witnessed such a display a few years ago. It was on a smaller scale and like Sue, I had no idea what was going on…and of course, having had a lifelong fear of birds, it rather stopped me in my tracks. It must’ve been therapeutic though because I’m pretty much over that fear. Phewf!

  6. Awesome! I had never heard of murmurations before. Like you, I’d seen this on a much smaller scale, but that was quite impressive! Now, I want to experience one!

    P.S. I didn’t know you used to have a fear of birds!

    •  @JMattHicks It was shot on the River Shannon in the UK by two independent filmmakers.  It is definitely awe inspiring…I have to agree!  :)
