Their hearts beat 1000 beats per minute; they can reach speed up to 200 mph and can strike with the power twice as the power of a rifle bullet; most of them can fly forward, but some can also fly sideways and even backwards; some of them can even walk on the water; they vary in size from 1.6 grams to kilograms; finally, their population on Earth estimates between 200 to 400 billion individuals… Have you already guessed who are we talking about? Yeah, of course, birds…
Birds have always played a significant role in the life of humans. As the evidence for this statement, let us remember that in ancient times birds were commonly considered as creatures close to Gods and thus endowed with supernatural powers. Birds were common characters, mentioned in multiple legends and fairy tales. Just to give a few examples, let’s remember the eagle, sent by Zeus to execute punishment to Prometheus, or the white dove, that brought the palm twig to Noah as the sign of new land found after the Deluge.
Birds are truly amazing creatures from many points of view: starting from their unbelievable abilities, such as ability to imitate human voice and finishing with the aesthetically perfect coloring Mother Nature gave to birds. We have collected the photographs of birds just to show how fantastically beautiful they can be. Here you will find a tender hummingbird and a noble eagle, an imposing penguin and a wise owl. Actually, the appearance of birds reflects clearly the character of a particular bird, which makes them close to humans. Browse through this birds showcase and you will see that birds can also be perfect photo models… just like humans.
