I love the grace and the perfection of their flight.  They have soft feathers under their wings to dampen the sound of air, making their approach noiseless.

With a simple editing trick Dennis Hlynsky (a professor at RISD) turns an already beautiful flock of swallows into an amazing tangle of interwoven trails. Stick around until the end to see them dive in unison.
