Shorebirds, Copper River Delta, Alaska

This flock of shorebirds nearly formed the shape of  a heart.  I captured this last spring and saved it thinking it would be a perfect post for Valentines day – not realizing it would fall on a holiday weekend.  So I thought I would post it today.  It wouldn’t take too much PhotoShop work to make it into a perfectly shaped heart, but I prefer leaving items as seen.

Actually, this tight formation of fast flying birds making constant direction changes was the result of an attacking predator.

  2. Great image! Very clean, an excelent example of “less is more”! The fog and the heart shaped flock makes it something to remember 🙂

  4. Really amazing Ron. I have always wanted the opportunity to photograph a flock like this. We get batches of starlings around here that can practically fill the sky, but it always seems like I am in the middle of running errands or something when I see them.
