Post by Bobby Deal » Mon Dec 18, 2017 5:47 am

Tis the season for the southern migration of geese and here in Northern Colorado we are the recipients of millions of both greater and lesser Canadian Geese.

Impressive images. Almost feels like you're flying right there with them.

These shots came from a unique opportunity. Here in this part of Colorado Waterfowl hunting is a big deal and most times when you see the geese in the air they are way up there to stay out of range of the pass shooters.

In this spot though they were coming off of a protected lake and I was on the ridge of the hill just above the lake so when they came over me they were still quite low to the ground. I must have stood on that spot for an hour and photographed 100 different groups coming over me. The action was fast though, those big wings move these birds at a much faster pace than one would think. Trying to pan with them while swinging a 300 mm lens was a challenge to say the least

That blue sky is amazing, and I notice the third one is looking at you wondering if you're going to shoot it or not. S-
