Default 2 shots of Geese lifting off

Here are two wide shots of the geese and ducks lifting off the pond due to an approaching eagle. It was early morning about 1 hour after sunrise. This first picture is a flock of snow geese. The second is a mix of Greater white-fronted geese and ducks.
Thanks for looking and all comments and critiques are welcomed.
Cheers,
Steve

These pictures shows the wonders of nature on how the geese and ducks don't have accidents of running into each other. If these were humans, there will be a lot of dead bodies dropping from the sky.

Thank you both for your comments. It is a grand site, to be sure, when they all lift off. The sound is my favorite part.

Merry Christmas and Cheers to all,

Steve
