Sound Seen


the thrum
of wings hovering
stillness in motion

  1. Oh my goodness! Your goodness too, and especially nature’s, which you conveyed so well! ( and may i add: i love the title, the photograph, and the words. I have long wished I could find a way to use a word like “thrum” in conversation.)

  2. They are aerodynamically amazing as well as beautiful birds. Their high wing beat frequency, unusual shape of their wingbeats, large hearts, hollow bones allow performance in the air only matched by insects – which use a completely different mechanism for rapid wingbeats. They are a treasure! One zoomed right over my head as I was out walking my dog this afternoon!
