Photographer Doesn’t Realize He Has Captured One In A Million Photo Till He Gets Home

Sometimes things don’t turn out as planned, and nature is one such phenomena which cannot be controlled, imprisoned or even predicted. One might just have to go with the flow. Similar is the case with Photography you really never predict how even a simple image can turn out to be. Similar case happened with Hilzingen Germany based Photograher, Daniel Biber. Find out more to know what happened when he returned back home after taking pictures.

Costa Brava


The episode took over the Costa Brava, in Northeastern Spain, when a mass of starlings began to gather into a shape-shifting cloud, known as a murmuration. This phenomenon is a true demonstration, with hundreds, sometimes thousands or more birds moving and twisting in what appears to be a coordinated, single organism that can quickly morph into some startling shapes.

Daniel was there when the starlings began to swirl and twist, most likely the result of a predator such as a falcon or hawk being in the vicinity. It was almost supernatural that in response to the predator, the cloud of starlings ended up twisting and turning themselves into a giant, single bird, as if to say to their tormentor, “we are bigger than you.”

As they say, patience pays off, and it did  for Mr. Biber, who had tried and failed to capture the starlings in full flow before. “’I’ve tried to photograph the starlings but it never worked out as well as I hoped for,” he said.

“’I eventually drove to the spot every day for four days in a row in order to capture them. I picked a spot where I thought they would turn up and picked a matching foreground and backdrop in order to put them in scene.” Turn next to to find shots of Mr. Biber’s incredible starlings shots.
