This is some photo. Taken by amatuer photographer Paul McGreevy. Who enjoys taking pictures of the outdoors. It shows starlings in a formation that looks like a whale chasing a dolphin. Its amazing how the patterns of nature repeat themselves again and again.



The birds’ formation resembles a dolphin being chased by a killer whale with its mouth agape. Amateur photographer Paul McGreevy caught the mesmerising scene at sunset in Gretna Green, Scotland, this week. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk...

That is truly incredible. It's not perfect....but so close, there is no need to even note what we should be seeing, huh? It forms are clear enough and just amazing to see in such an offhand way.

Nature is an amazing place!

Yep I was there......in the dolphin's right flipper!

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

That's the most amazing formation I've ever seen, and hard to catch in a photo because the forms change in a split second. Thanks for putting that up.

Mate I,m Gobbed Smacked. what a snap, go shout yerself a pint.

Have trouble believing it hasn't been tampered with, but very cool.

Looks more like a humpback to me though.

They are saying. That the dolphins and whales are being freed. We're killing them in the oceans, and now we will lose them and they are being freed.

This is a direct message to us, to look up. And this should show us something else, how intelligent nature is, and responsive. And even, how spiritually aware.

I know better than to just come out and call it a fake.
There are too many people who need this to be real.

I WILL say that, as a photographer, things LIKE this are very easily done in photoshop.
Take it for what it's worth.

It's a really neat photo, real or not.

Oh, I think you really are screwed, as your namesake tells.
Quit your skeptisism and appreciate the Beauty of Nature for what it is.

Before you've figured out whether this photo is real or not, Beauty and Nature will have disappeared before you can call it Fake or Not.

I'm a photographer too, and I capture images of what is Real, Now.....before it's all gone.

Ohhh I'm sure it's as real as the nose on my face.
I'm just saying, things LIKE this are easily photoshoped.
NOT this one though.
This is the real deal.
Yessiree.

I feel so sorry for you both.
If you take the time to observe the naural world, you will find many sights as beautiful as this Starling flight phenomenon.

Do you think everyone is out to cheat the other? I'm sorry if you do.
Life can be beautiful if we don't try to # it up.

I can look at it a different way and see a narwhal trying to spear a platypus. The platypus would be if you took the rear of the dolphin to be the face. Hmm, I think I've been on ATS too long...trying to hard to think outside the box now, aren't I?

Ha ha! Good one! I saw the narwhal thing too, but not the reverse-dolphin-platypus.

I think it looks like a Narwhal swimming a little behind a Dolphin. I see the Platypus also if you turn the dolphin around. It does look more like a Narwhal.

Why does the whale have to be chasing the Dolphin or Platypus, they could just be swimming together. Half the people in the world initially focus on fun and play in things and the other half initially focus on survival tactics.

When I first saw it I thought it was CGI. The fact that it was in several major papers made me question that. I would have thought they would have had the savy yo check it out. I could be wrong. Either way its a lovely image.

Have you ever considered it from another perspective, say 180 degrees? Maybe it's you that can't accept the truth? Given the infinite possibilities in digital media, before I jump to negative conclusions, I ask myself what is the basis for the image? Is there a historic precident for the image? Who could even have dreamed up something so outrageous?

I wonder if scientists at HAARP are fooling around again with their technology, or if Project Blue Beam got an upgrade in their technology.

it's either the above or that nature works in mysterious ways.

I think it is the latter case (nature works in awesome ways!)
