Rhythm

Rhythm (from Greek ῥυθμός, rhythmos, "any regular recurring motion, symmetry" ) generally means a "movement marked by the regulated succession of strong and weak elements, or of opposite or different conditions" . This general meaning of regular recurrence or pattern in time can apply to a wide variety of cyclical natural phenomena having a periodicity or frequency of anything from microseconds to several seconds (as with the riff in a rock music song); to several minutes or hours, or, at the most extreme, even over many years.

The first 25 seconds of the video are a bit choppy, but afterwards, this rare scene of a flock of starlings moving in absolute harmony becomes a perfect spectacle of true rhythm. Natural coordination and symmetry in a purer form cannot be found outside of this example of Mother Nature's most passionate waltz.
