Flying Away

Each evening at sunset, hundreds of birds do a dance in the sky. Swirling around and back, they are going to roost for the night. It is startling and beautiful to see. I snapped these on two different nights, as you can see.






Some bright morning when this life is over, I’ll fly away
To a land on God’s celestial shore, I’ll fly away
When the shadows of this life have gone, I’ll fly away
Like a bird from these prison walls I’ll fly, I’ll fly away
1929 by Albert E. Brumley

Yes, it is a stunning sight! I have seen them and they make quite a lot of noise too! Have a beautiful day!

I love seeing those birds too. It's truly a sight to behold. I always think they're just doing a praise dance to our great Father in heaven!

One of my favorite songs, have always loved it. these are amazing, we once saw small birds do this in the middle of the day while we were in the field, I don't know how they all fly without running into each other. you really got great shots of them, and I think it is thousands not hundreds. wow.. what a sight to see... I nearly died of shock when I got up today and you had not commented and neither did Linda, so now I hope both of you are OK

It must be a beautiful sight Ginny. I haven't seen any large flocks of birds like this in a very long time. Thank you for sharing them, and the verse was beautiful.

That is an amazing sight.I think I like the pictures with the pinkish tone best, but then that is a color I really like.

Gorgeous and amazing flight patterns.
Great captures and I do love the song quote. I hadn't realized it was from 1929. Been around a very long time.
