A Bird in Flight are bird-like geometric patterns that were introduced by mathematical artist Hamid Naderi Yeganeh.[5][6][7] Yeganeh has created these figures by combing through tens of thousands of computer-generated images. They are defined by trigonometric functions.[8] An example of such patterns is a set of 500 line segments where for each the endpoints of the -th line segment are:

and
