This is the most amazing swarm of budgerigars. We were camping in the Australian Outback and were woken by the noise of birds. Thousands of small green budgerigars turning and wheeling in tight formation. Dipping down briefly to snatch a beakful of water from a small puddle before swooping off again with a hawk darting in and out of the swarm. I stood entranced before grabbing the camera.
It is a once in a life time sight that I would like to share with you for this “photography 101” theme of swarm.
Just a small number of the thousands as they flashed by.
Then they would, briefly, dip down into this shallow puddle before wheeling off again.
What an amazing sight.
