Default Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge

It was a glorious day, yesterday, at the refuge. So many white geese and ducks.
I spent the morning focused on shooting Snow Geese. Here are some of my results. As always, thanks for looking and your comments.

Cheers, Steve

The geese were all resting and quite content until a raccoon come along and spooked them.

This looks like a good spot to rest.

I suspect that the feet make good air-brakes.

Very nice series! We don't have anything like that in the Bay Area. A birder friend of mine may be going up to Colusa to do some birding next week. I may tag along with him.
