I had the opportunity to go out on a photo shoot with the refuge manager yesterday. Of course just as we got our gear set up the clouds rolled in and the light went flat. Oh well, we tried to make the best of it. There was a small group of us all trying to find something that would make the trip worthwhile.
Here is my effort.

Merry Christmas all,
Steve

1st, a group of snow geese taking off with a trio of American Wigeon tagging along.

The evening fly-off. The real reason we were out there. So so sunset but the birds were magnificent.

I loved the sound of all those geese lifting off. There is nothing like it.

Terrific sequence. I really like the first two and the first of the sunset shots, although the landscape was really beautiful, even if it did make bird photography difficult.

#1, I like the composition.

Great landscape of the mountians.

Very good low light captures.
