Amazing Video


I'm finally feeling better after a cold that seemed to come and go for about month.  I hope to get back to my normal life soon.

I saw this video yesterday (tweeted by Kevin of Lettered Cottage) and not only is it amazing, I think it's just very well done.  Beautifully filmed and edited so you feel like you're along for the ride, it gives me chills every time I watch it...which is like 20 times.  No kidding.

  2. Oh my gosh.....this cold sucks eggs. big time.

    I do love that video though and good news (for me) today I felt better.

    We are both very bad patients.

  4. I actually saw this on a friends blog a little while ago but I loved seeing it again.
    sigh...
    Makes me think that I spend too much time in my little routine world.
    I need to step out of this box.

  8. This is what the internet is for, to experience things we probably will never get a chance to other wise. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Steve, That cold that seems to be going around is getting people left and right! I hope you're feeling better today.
    I saw that video a little while back (I'm cutting edge like that, you know hahahaha!) and like you, I watched it dozens of times. Nature is so incredible, isn't she? You can tell those girls knew they'd just seen something awesome.

  18. Steve,

    You could hear the awe in their voices. I woke up with the flu-this certainly made me appreciate the big scheme of things. Talk about teamwork!

  20. As a kid in upstate New York, I can remember watching flocks of starlings flying about the sky as they gathered for their annual fall migration, but never anything like this. Truly incredible!

    Cheers,

  22. Oh my gosh that was amazing! I always love watching the blackbirds flying over fields during the winter - and the sound is so distinctive.

  23. Holy Murmuration Steve. Thanks! You made me cry at 6 am- not easy!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow! Wonderful!! I think my sister, Joan, needs to add a video. Don't you agree?

    I just love your blog. I feel like I have a secret friend.
    Hope you stay well.

  25. That was so moving. Why can't we humans move together in harmony like they do?

  31. I'm in the middle of the same cold. It's really dragging me down too.

    I love this video. I saw it a few months ago and watched over and over. I'm going to watch it again - give me a little lift. Thanks. : )

  34. This is one of my favorite videos too! I've watched it several times and never get tired of it. Nature is so beautiful. It makes me sad to think of how many people today are disconnected from nature and the outdoors. It's nice to see these young people outside enjoying it.

  35. Wow! I needed this today. Thank you! :)

  36. Just magical! I saw a smaller version of this the other day as I was driving into town. I thought it was puffs of smoke in the distance, but it was moving oddly. As I drove closer, I could see the puffs were flocks moving together. Just so beautiful.

    Thanks for posting!

  37. Dear Steve, I love everything about this video - the swallows are amazing, the music is beautiful and the girls are adorable! Thanks so much for posting it.
    If you're not all well soon, maybe a visit to the doc is in order. Both my daughter and hubby had lingering colds - one turned out to be walking pneumonia and the other a sinus infection. Hope yours just goes away on its own though. Best, Ruth

  38. Thanks, Ruth. What a terrible year for illness given it's been such a mild winter. I've heard of a lot of people with pneumonia... and know stomach flu going around. I hope to avoid that one! I'm feeling really well though, finally, but thanks for the suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Well Steve, I'm glad to know that you're feeling A-Okay now. I, too, know people with a nasty stomach bug so let's not get that! May we continue in our good health, Ruth

  40. Such a soothing, vicarious, ride. At first look I thought the "murmuration" to be enhanced...it was such a lovely orchestration...a gift to the mother and her girl...how amazing and miraculous that they were able to capture...and to share...this lovely moment with the world. Thanks so much for passing it along Steve.
    Warmly,
    Tracey

  44. An awesome experience. I felt scared for a moment as I have not seen such a flock before.

    Thanks for sharing

  45. I've never seen such a thing. Definetly makes me want to spend more time outdoors.

  46. Sitting at the Airport waiting to fly home from Belize and watching this reminded me of the schools of flying fish we saw at Tobacco Cay. Very entertaining to see the pelicans diving into the midst of them.
