Chronophotographs Capture the Patterns of Birds in Flight

Barcelona-based Xavi Bou‘s photographs record the patterns birds trace while flying in flocks. His Ornitographies series captures different bird species soaring around the Catalonia region using a method based on chronophotography that compresses multiple seconds into a single frame. They are stunningly beautiful.
