SHARE Bird flight patterns visualized in some amazing videos

If you’re a bird lover, Dennis Hlynksy, the head of the film/animation department at the Rhode Island School of Design may just be your new hero.

He has created some incredible videos highlighting the flight patterns of individual birds, including European starlings and black vultures. Thanks to some work he does in Adobe After Effects, he’s able to visualize the flight pattern of each bird and create a unique and incredible visual trail.

Take a look:

Hlynsky has more than 90 videos, including some of bees, fish and other wildlife, and they’re all pretty amazing.

His “Ants on Paper” is pretty cool:
