In many ways, we're becoming increasingly migratory. I recently came across this link, which hosts a video that shows 24-hours worth of air traffic. The jets flying back and forth between Europe and North America reminds me of a swarm of bees. You may have to watch it more than once to catch all of the swarms.

Like a swarm of bees...
Migration corridors and transportation routes have always fascinated me, whether it's the momentous journeys made by herds of roaming caribou, monarch butterflies, or arctic terns, or human migration and transportation routes like the hypothetical crossings of Beringia or the rivers of Canada, former highways of the fur trade and First Nations people long before that, mountain routes like the one described in the Kohklux map, the Dine/Dene migration to the Southern US from Northern Canada, or the migration of European settlers into North America.
