Starlings Caught Forming A Murmuration In The Shape Of A Larger Bird By This Irish Photographer

Can you remember the movie 'Finding Nemo' in which a large school of fish got together to resemble a much larger fish? Jems Crombie, a professional photographer succeeded in capturing such a thing in real life. He managed to capture a flock of birds instead of a school of fish. The incident took place over Lough Ennell in County Westmeath, Ireland.  

James also received the outstanding award for the photographer of the year by the Press Photographers Association of Ireland recently. James is rather keen on sports photography. But he had to focus on nature photography due to the cancellations of sports events during the pandemic season.
