Snow Geese Fly-out 73214

Thousands of Snow Geese taking flight en masse

One of the most incredible sights I've ever seen, and not one goose made
me regret them flying directly over me. Such well mannered birds! ;-)

WOW!!! Only one time have I had a similar experience, but mine involved hundreds of Canadian Geese, not thousands. When they took off from the field beside me I felt they were lifting me too. I've never forgotten the feeling.
