To answer my own question - how?

Bou snaps hundreds of photos of birds in flight and stitches them together in Photoshop, compressing several seconds of movement into one frame.

Bou realized he needed to combine multiple shots, a technique that draws on the chronophotography that Étienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge pioneered in the 19th century. It worked exactly as he envisioned.

Bou uses a variety of cameras, including a Sony F27 and Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4K, and shoots 30 to 60 frames per second. A final image might include more than 600 shots woven together into amazing patterns—the black slash of starlings, the lazy loops of storks, the frenetic lines of swifts. The shapes are as varied and beautiful as the birds that created them.

Well spotted,
I'd say the series was probably shot in Iceland, as there's at least 3 others shot there too,
Looks like Vik black sand beach, stack at Vik and ice lagoon as well.
I know what i like, If not always why.

Very cool. I imagine a product of combining images taken at very short intervals.

I suppose the results are better than combining individual frames from a video?

Could this effect be made by using multiple exposures?
