Seeing an animal in the wild is impressive, but seeing hundreds, sometimes even thousands all at once is awesome. These magnificent photos of animal migrations show how organised and complex life can be.

For some of these animals their reasons for travelling sometimes thousands of miles every year is unknown, but it is expected that it is something to do with the changing of the seasons and linked with temperature changes. The way in which they move in organised flocks of birds, shoals of fish and herds when on dry land makes for an incredible spectacle.
