Amazing Flock of Starlings

Location: Otmoor, Oxfordshire, UK

An amazing sight, these Starlings were flocking before roosting for the night. The patterns they formed were incredible and you could hear the mass of flapping wings in the distance!
1:10 onwards is where it's most impressive.

Awesome Jumping Spider
Species: Jumping Spider - Telamonia dimidiata
Location: Kranji Nature Reserve, Singapore
Canon EOS 7D
Sigma 180mm f/3.5 EX APO IF HSM
A really comical spider that I found underneath a leaf. It kept running up onto the top of the leaf and watched me for a few seconds before running back underneath.
I love how Jumping spiders physically move their bodies to look in different directions.
