This photograph of a starling flock (or murmuration of starlings) flying in a mesmerizing, ever-changing formation was taken in southern Israel. The same flock of starlings was captured on video also. To view the video, go to Google and type in starling murmuration in israel. Whenever I see a murmuration of starlings, either on video, or in the air above my head, I always feel I am receiving a message. The message is a subdued, continuous sound and I am free to translate it in any way I choose. The message, for me, is often about a natural world of creature inclusiveness.
