Secret of a bird’s flight.

Bismillah.

Motionless midair, descending controllably with grace, that bird started flapping it’s wings a few feet away from me to generate a maneuver among obstacles.

Was it thinking or was it not thinking ,that bird, it was unaware of my presence but was it really aware of its own aerial magnificence ? It had its eyes set on where to go and two storeys above ground level I had my eyes set on it.

“Do they not see the birds above them with wings outspread and [sometimes] folded in? None holds them [aloft] except the Most Merciful. Indeed He is, of all things, Seeing.” [67:19] Quran.
