Amazing Timelapse of Sheep Herding from Above
Check out this mesmerizing aerial timelapse of herding sheep by Israel-based photographer, Lior Patel. The footage was taken over a period of 7 months in the Peace Valley Region of Yokneam, as Patel followed the grazing pattern of a single flock. According to an interview with Colossal:
Vegetable farmer Michael Morgan, who’s referred to as the “king of cabbage,” and South Africa-born herder Keith Markov have managed the flock since 1985, and today it fluctuates between 1,000 and 1,750 individuals. Each year, the sheep migrate up to seven kilometers from the valley to the outskirts of Ramot Menashe with the help of shepherds Mustafa Tabash, Mahmoud Kaabiyah, Eyal Morgan, and Dan Goldfinger and a few border collies.
