Bosque Geese (9)

I spent some time laughing and shooting at them and then decided it would be more fun to try and get the ones with more dark color on them I had read some where that the ones with dark color are only 5% of the snow geese.

The must shoot at normal white ones

#2


#3


#4


IMHO the geese with dark colors are more interesting and much harder to get a shot of.

#5


#6


#7
4 out of 5 is not bad

excellent work as always, Roger... that last one is just mind-boggling! it's a miracle they don't constantly collide and knock each other out of the sky! i'd hate to be the air traffic controller for THAT bunch!

I love the head-on "final approach" shot (#2) - Clear the runway! You can see the air brakes extending (spread feet) as the landing gear deploy, plus the effects of stall, lifting the feathers along the top of the wing. Great shot! 8)
