Happy New Year

Did you know that there are different names for groups of animals?  A group of lions is a pride, crows are a murder, and starlings are a murmuration.  If you’ve ever passed a tree filled with starlings you know why.  Starlings like to do things in groups and one thing they do is truly amazing.  There are a bunch of videos out there depicting their joyous aerobatics but one in particular stands out for me.  It’s a combination of the music and the fact that the birds fly right over the camera person.  It is a very personal moment and it doesn’t fail to move me no matter how many times I watch it.  I suggest watching full screen.  May your year be filled with moments that feel like this:
