A FLOCK OF STARLINGS HOVERS ABOVE ROME
A flock of starlings, hovers above Rome under a sickle moon, November 29, 2000. Every year autumn brings from the north eastern parts of Europe to Rome millions of migrating starlings to spend the winter season. As these birds seek the best spot to roost at night, flying frantically and tightly in groups which may number thousands of units, they compass abstract figures enriching the sky at dusk with what may seem to be a joyful dalliance.

In this photo print, captured by Alessia Pierdomenico, a mesmerizing spectacle unfolds above the ancient city of Rome. A flock of starlings gracefully hovers in the evening sky, illuminated by the soft glow of a sickle moon on November 29, 2000. Each year during autumn, millions of migrating starlings embark on an incredible journey from northeastern parts of Europe to seek refuge in Rome for the winter season. As night falls and they search for their nightly roosting spot, these birds create a breathtaking display that seems like an abstract masterpiece painted across the dusky canvas. Flying with frantic energy yet maintaining perfect synchrony, thousands upon thousands of starlings form tight-knit groups that weave through the air as one harmonious entity. Their collective movements trace intricate patterns against the fading light, enriching the heavens with their joyful dalliance. This image captures nature's symphony at its finest—a testament to both the beauty and resilience found in our natural world. It serves as a reminder that even amidst bustling cities and historical landmarks like Rome, wildlife continues to find solace and sanctuary. Alessia Pierdomenico's lens has immortalized this enchanting moment forever—allowing us to marvel at this ephemeral dance between man and nature.
