Never alone

Watching animal mates stick together always warms my heart.  These two were taking turns hunting and sharing whatever snacks they found.  One would take off and the other would sit, patiently waiting for the other to return.  Their body language looked like love to me.  Keeping each other warm and full; weathering the storm together as one.

We fly as One

I’m not sure if this happens everywhere – I suppose it does, if this species of bird is indigenous to the area you live in…or maybe birds do this everywhere and I’ve just never captured it until now.

It’s a single thought – One bird (who knows which one) seems to be making a decision for the entire flock to fly in a particular direction and they all go as one.  Great masses of these birds will black out the sky – all flying in the same zig-zag patterns like they’re performing some sort of new Olympic sport.  It’s spell binding to watch.

I wonder if humans act this way and we don’t even know it.  From above, I can only imagine this is what we look like as we traverse from home to work through busy city centres.  Only, we stop for a 7$ coffee along the way.
