Life at the Greyhound Racetrack

The Post Parade     Morning Schooling

Hoses for Summertime Hoses for Summertime Morning Schooling Meat!

Most people live far away from greyhound racetracks and may have only seen a race broadcasted on TV or the web. With that in mind, Rachelhogue put together her set Life at a Greyhound Track – Behind the Scenes to document the events at the track near her home. She wants to gives the majestic greyhounds more publicity, show things as accurately as possible, and help them being adopted to loving homes when they retire.

Enjoy more photos in Rachel’s set Life at a Greyhound Track – Behind the Scenes or discover other photos of those friendly quadrupeds with a tag search for greyhound.

Formation flying in thousands Starlings Starlings

12th January 2012

Every year in autumn and winter, amazing Starling formations can be seen in parts of Europe including South England, Denmark and France. During the cold months, the birds become highly gregarious and turn into huge flocks of highly variable size.

Hundreds of thousands of birds can be part of the flocks. They form tight sphere-like formations in flight, frequently changing their shape providing stunning sights.
