Default A Blizzard of Snow Geese

I was out at the refuge today and there were tens of thousands of white geese. Both Snow and Ross's geese. I was actually shooting a perched Peregrine when the blizzard erupted. All due to a passing Bald Eagle.
I wish I could include the sounds that went with this series of photos because it was thunderous.
BTW, the same scene was unfolding behind me, in fact all around me. There had to be 8-10 thousand geese all getting up at the same time.
WHAT A RUSH.

Enjoy, Steve

Here is a link to the entire gallery if you want to see more. Thanks.

#6 I cropped this one a little closer, but the density was just incredible.
