Plovers in the Air

Birds flying in tight flocks fascinate me, leaving me wondering how they communicate that synchronized take off, flight and landing. And of course I have to try to photograph them at it.

I saw this flock take off from a mud flat then make a quick u-turn.

They looped around the pond a few times then landed pretty much where they started.
