A Stunning Drone Timelapse of Sheep Being Herded

Aerial photographer Lior Patel captured absolutely stunning timelapse footage of a giant herd of sheep moving to greener pastures where they can openly graze. Patel has been following this herd for a while and his flying robot caught the ovine crowd, led by dogs, overrunning farms and disrupting traffic, all in search of a new place to call home in Yokneam, Isreal.

For the past seven months I have been following a large herd of sheep, from winter pasture to the movement and arrival at the summer pasture. The size of the herd ranges from 1000-1700 sheep.
