Flowers From the Air

There's nothing better than a bouquet of spring flowers... unless you live near the tulip fields in Holland.
A tulip field in full bloom in Holland
For a month and a half every year, millions of brightly colored blooms turn thelandscape into a panorama of color. The video below, shot with a DJI Inspire 1 drone, was captured above some epic flower fields in the Netherlands. The fields shown in the video lie near Lisse, home to the world's second-largest flower garden.

The tulips, hyacinths, narcissi and daffodils are a highly trafficked tourist destination in spring months and are in bloom from the end of March until the second week of May. Road trippers can take a 25-mile drive through the countryside and see flower-sellers, public gardens and museums all along the highway, according to National Geographic.

Take a look at the stunning drone footage in the video below.
