Aerial timelapses are normally fairly cool and who doesn’t love animals? So, it is smart to mix the 2. And that’s precisely what Israeli drone photographer, Lior Patel did on this timelapse as he spent a number of months following and filming a big herd of between 1,000 and 1,700 sheep, together with accompanying canine and people.
It’s an interesting and hypnotic video, and really totally different from a lot of the others we see blasting throughout our screens nowadays – significantly from drones. Seeing the sheep transfer collectively as a single cohesive unit is mesmerising. It nonetheless amazes me that all of them simply stick collectively and comply with one another with out randomly dispersing in whichever instructions they need.
Lior tells DIYP that the video was created over the span of seven months with the DJI Mavic 2 Pro from between the winter grazing interval to summer time pasture. He says he was guided on the actions of the herd and the trail they have been anticipated to take every day he filmed, which allowed him to plan his flight path forward of time. The ultimate result’s the fascinating and delightful video above.
