Inspire by Mandy Crandell

I adore this photograph taken by ballerina and photographer Mandy Crandell in Indiana. I imagine it must have taken her a great deal of time and patience to get those birds to follow her instructions. But the result is fantastic.

Just kidding.

This is sooo cute. I had to share. :)

    this is the time of year where huge swarms of birds swoosh down into our neighborhood, covering the lawns in a huge community of feathered friends…they inspired several of my paintings/drawings. I love watching them as they move together!
