    If you enjoy these you might want to look at the book An Exaltation of Larks by James Lipton. It contains over 1000 collectives for many things other than animals. Some are familiar such as "a host of angels" or "a comedy of errors" and others obscure such as these two from Winston Churchill: "a drizzle of empires" and " a bodyguard of lies".
