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.

Incredible Shots Were Result Of Patience

Often things in nature turn out in a totally different way than you expected them to be. And the results are breathtaking. Similar case happened with Daniel when he captures the Starling Murmurations.

The Murmurations Never Worked So Well Before

Daniel has been trying to capture murmurations before but they never seemed to workout so well like this time. It was later that Daniel realized what happened. Turn Next to know more.

Daniel worked on capturing the starlings for four days until he finally succeeded.Daniel didn’t realized he captured such unique shots until he got home.

“Only when I checked the pictures on the computer later, I realised what formation the starlings had created,” he told the Daily Mail. “I was so concentrated on taking pictures at the time that I hadn’t realised that the starlings had created a giant bird in the sky.” Turn Next to know what happened.

The Splendid Scenes

Daniel said “It took less than 10 seconds for the birds to create that formation”. He further added.

Patience Paid Off

“I realised that I had captured a unique snapshot, technically, sharp and in high quality”. Turn next for more.

It is a very rare sight

Daniel explains the unsteadiness of the birds and their different combinations.“It usually happens that birds of prey turn up and the starlings then create bizarre forms. It can be quite erratic and completely random”, he says.

It Is Difficult To Realize The Combination

He further explained how others might have failed to observe the combination. “A number of people were watching this display but they were observing it from other spots and might not have seen what I captured”. Turn Next to know what happened further.
