birds






Aren't these breathtaking? I have always been super fascinated by swarming birds. I want to know how they know where to go all at once and if there's math behind the flight patterns and all kinds of other stuff. They're just beautiful. I seriously gasp when I see a group of birds take off on my way to school or anywhere else. Love love love.

I love these images too! Sorry I haven't replied back to your Twitter comment. But, yes it's a struggle in our field...especially right now (as in most). Just keep your head high and passions up.

Don't worry about it, Diana! I'm ok not being a textile-something as soon as I graduate. I don't expect it really. I'd really like to open a shop/gallery/classroom/coffee bar in Oregon. We'll see... haha!

Aren't they stunning, Heather?! I've always wanted to take photos like these, I always watch the flocks of birds when they take off from the power lines or from 3 different trees and they all know where they're going. I never have a camera, though, and i'm usually driving!
