Birds Actually Have Their Tracks Too
One question haunted Barcelona-shutterbug Xavi Bou for a long time. What do bird tracks look like? But he was not staring at the ground. Bou was gazing up at the sky. His imagination saw snake-like ripples following in the wake of each bird. A few years ago, he found a way to photograph them.
Bou used a video camera to film different species of birds in flight. He then compiled the frames into a single image. The photograph shows each bird’s position advancing, frame-by-frame, to create mesmerizing “tracks” along the paths that birds take.
