Nature has a way of always dazzling us. Be it a fox’s failed attempt to capture some prey in the snow or an iguana-snake chase that ranks up there with the Fast and Furious franchise, the world around us can be breathtaking.
Such is the case in the above video, shot by Regard du Vivant, in which a falcon attempts to grab dinner by attacking a large cloud of starlings. What happens next is stunning, as the birds twist and turn in unison to avoid being caught and becoming a meal.
It’s gritty survival meets beauty, a contradiction that results in something utterly mesmerizing.
