Wild Bird Wednesday

Wild Bird Wednesday 36

I am only just beginning to sort my pictures (which, by the way, were not as good as I had hoped ... poor lighting, lots of motion and then there was that person holding the camera:( .    I did want to throw something up as a teaser for what's to come so this is it.  This is a flock of Snow Geese circling the ponds along side the park we were in.  ( Click on picture for better view).

I was a fair distance from this flock, but it still took five pictures to get the whole group.  And, this was not, by far, the biggest flock (swarm) of Snow Geese we saw.   They had estimated that there were approximately 2.5 to 3 million Snow Geese in this migration all of which would pass through Kearny, Nebraska in March and early April.  Enjoy ... more to come :)

  6. It's still a great shot! I find it quite frustrating when I am trying for a shot that I can't quite get. I can't wait to see some of your other photos.

    I didn't get many photos in Florida even though I had high hopes. The birds and flowers just were not cooperating with me. lol. I did get a log of great shots of Pogo though.

    I'm at work now, so gotta get busy. You have a good night. Hugs, Edna B.

  7. Oh. What an incredible sight. Thank you so much. I am guessing that it was as loud as it was beautiful.

  12. That is very impressive - it looks like a cloud. That had to be very awe inspiring to see in person.
