Vulture Flying

While Muybridge initially limited his studies of motion to a horse galloping, he later branched out and experimented with other animals and people. This resulted in the publication of Animal Locomotion in 1887, which included 781 plates of moving horses, elephants, lions, storks, other animals, and people. He had them walk, run, and fly a fixed track, and set up banks of cameras to record their motion.
