If you forgot that birds can fly and it’s awesome, these photos will remind you.
“It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… Oh, wait. It actually is a bird!”
Photographer Xavi Bou snapped his first photo about 15 years ago. He kicked his career off in the fashion and advertising industries, but before long, his animal-loving roots took over. He itched to turn his lens toward the natural world.
“Like an amateur naturalist, I can recognize the tracks of many animals,” Bou said in an email. “One day I asked myself, ‘What track would be left by birds in flight?’
With that question, a new project was born one he calls “Ornitographies.”
