How beautiful!
I tried to catch some birds in flight today, but it was so windy, all I caught were 3 little airplanes which all of a sudden appeared in the sky (and were slower than the birds *g*).

Hey Sigma/Cuckoo and Kalyan...thanks for adding new dimesnion to the pic....!

Maria - lol...well not sure about birds - there are lots of clouds these days in your pics...!

Ally - Thanks for your appreciation, I am still learning and no professional leaning as well - just for fun and solely for me, I am glad I have found few friends those who like the same...and add their perspective.

Shruti - Yeah - you are a bird when are you writing more....or are you availing those fab discounts on flights

really cool photos as well as the poetry!

not sure if these were geese... but

Q: Why do geese fly in a V?
A: Energy conservation and visual assurance.

Scientists have determined that the V-shaped formation that geese use when migrating serves two important purposes:

First, it conserves their energy. Each bird flies slightly above the bird in front of him, resulting in a reduction of wind resistance. The birds take turns being in the front, falling back when they get tired. In this way, the geese can fly for a long time before they must stop for rest.

The second benefit to the V formation is that it is easy to keep track of every bird in the group. Fighter pilots often use this formation for the same reason.
