Bird migration

 

Bird migration has fascinated people since thousands of years. Even people who do not have a special interest in birds gather in autumn to watch cranes coming in their thousands to a night roost or mention happily that they saw the first swallow in spring. 

However, as a photographer it is not always easy to "translate" the phenomenon of Bird migration into pictures. Bird migration does not always take place in huge groups of birds, migration often happens at night and the exact migration routes are not always easy to predict. This gallery intends to show my attempts to translate my associations with "Bird migration" into photographs. 

To portray migrating birds in their natural environment I  several times  followed migrating  flocks in a motorized glider plane in Northern Israel.
