When things happen perfectly in nature, they show the world’s beauty and awe. Above the Costa Brava in northeastern Spain, a murmuration, or group of starlings, made noise. This is a spectacular sight to see, with hundreds, maybe thousands, of birds moving and twisting together bizarrely.

The starlings started to twirl and twist whenever a predator like a falcon or hawk came near. This is what photographer Daniel Biber from Hilzingen in Germany said. The cloud of starlings turned into one enormous bird as if to speak to their tormentor, “We are bigger than you.”

In an international photography competition, Mr. Biber was awarded a prize. Even yet, he had no idea he had shot so many fantastic photographs. The man stated that it wasn’t until he looked at the images on the computer that he realized what had happened. “I was so preoccupied with snapping photos that I didn’t notice the starlings forming a large bird in the sky.”

It worked out for Mr Biber after he couldn’t catch the starlings in flight. When he tried to shoot the starlings, they were always hard for him to do. It took me four days to find them. I chose a foreground and background that matched where they were in the picture.

#8 Starlings often make strange shapes when birds of prey show up, but this isn’t always the case. “It can be a little crazy and completely unplanned.”

#9 “A lot of people were watching this show, but they were in different places and might not have seen what I took.”
