When it comes to mesmerizing animal flock movements, starlings tend to get all the love. But this short video from the Israeli aerial photographer and filmmaker Lior Patel makes the case that a flock of sheep can be just as captivating given an overhead view and a bit of a speed nudge. Patel constructed this compelling video following the movements of a herd ranging from 1,000 to 1,750 sheep over seven months above the Peace Valley in northern Israel. Seen from a distance and then sped up, the animals trickle across the frame like a fluid substance. The resulting short makes for a tiny peek into the dynamics of herding behaviors, as well as a striking spectacle.
