Duck!! Ok, Not Duck.. Snow Geese

Duck!! Ok, Not Duck.. Snow Geese

Bosque del Apache, NM

Overwhelming when so many snow geese take flight at once.
A deafening noise of squaking and wings flapping, and then the beauty of it all.

Honorable Mention, 87th Show and Tell Contest, "Hot and Cold Light"

What a shot! I especially like the warm sunlight reflected on the geese.

Sandi,here I thought you named it "Duck" for the drake pintail top dead center. Oh well, "snow geese" will certainly work. Nice image. V

At least it's not another duck shot;) Great repetition and contrasting colors. Vote.

An excellent capture, Sandi, with deep colors. Hitchcock would like this one.

Sandi,

This is a once in a lifetime experience that everybody should experience. It's even more amazing to capture it with your camera. Here's my version:

Looks more like a computer animation - hard to envision so many birds of one species!
