A collection of starlings is called a murmuration. This one was captured by Liberty Smith and Sophie Windsor. Incredible.

    This is fantastic, thanks so much. I could do without the music. I mean, could we observe nature as it is, without ascribing any quality, in this case sound? Thanks again. Best wishes.

    • Ya i feel the same way i wish it was just the sounds of the lake

  • Teshka

    I have seen a few murmurations and this is brilliant. Must have been a really special moment.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
