Birds on a tower
On the way home for Thanksgiving I got stuck in some serious traffic several times. It took about twice the normal time to drive home. At one point while I was waiting in traffic that was slowly crawling by at about three miles an hour I slowly passed a cell phone tower by the side of the highway. On the tower was perched a small flock of birds. Periodically they would swarm off of the tower and move as a wave through the air, back and forth, and then return to perch on the cell tower. This went on and on, and as I slowly drove past I became entranced by their seamless movement.
