Bird Flight As You've Never Seen It Before

Winnie Lee writes that "Catalan photographer Xavi Bou's" fascination with bird flight "and the challenge of making their flight patterns visible" led him to combine "his passions for nature, art, and technology to create...images which he calls 'orntography,' from the Greek ornitho- ('bird') and graphe ('drawing'').

The images let us see the trails birds make in flight. The work--how he does it--must be painstaking and is described in Lee's story which includes many images he has created.The results are indeed a glory. 
To think, all this going on overhead and now we can see it.
