Spectacular Photos of Animal Migration

Animal migration is the travelling of long distances in search of a new habitat/home. The trigger for the migration is usually a response to lower temperatures resulting in a reduced food supply, and a change in day length. Migration is common in mammals, fish , and some insects but is most marked in birds. To be counted as a true migration, and not just a local dispersal or irruption, the movement of the animals should be an annual or seasonal occurrence. Here are some examples of truly awesome, breathtaking, and spectacular animal migration photos that you should see yourself. Enjoy the photos!
