    convocation of eagles
    convocations the events are boring af, but a convocation of eagles sounds like, righteous

    army of caterpillars
    I like this for patronizing reasons. like caterpillars could be an effective army.

    this just feels like an obvious staple right?

  9. β€’
    rookery of albatross
    I wish I had known about this for AP English when we read the rime of the ancient mariner, but alas. I will have to find a way to naturally work it into conversation now to make up. there are a lot of scenarios where it could work though, I think. ie, "wow what a beautiful day, perhaps we will spot a rookery of albatross" or "cute top, it reminds me of a rookery of albatross"
  10. β€’
    tower of giraffes
    I like this for its lack of subtlety

    crash of rhinos
    I'm getting a strong onomatopoeia vibe from this so
  12. β€’
    cloud of grasshoppers
    uh this visual actually is horrifying?
  13. β€’
    cackle of hyenas
    feels like the guy in charge of the giraffe noun was also in charge of this? I like his style tho
