Snow Geese Under Morning Light

Nature, Photography, Wildlife

During our last photo outing to shoot snow geese as shown on my previous post “Snow Geese Photo Outing”, we did photograph the beautiful snow geese under warm and beautiful sunset light. However, we missed the shot of snow geese lift-off scene in early morning, because the Refuge’s pool next to Broadkill Road was dry and therefore, no massive gathering of snow geese overnight.  I dug out a couple of pictures I took in the area four years ago. I still remember we arrived the area and parked the car on the roadside at dawn and as soon as we got out of the car we could hear very loud noise from tens of thousands of snow geese waking up and ready to take off to the nearby corn fields for their breakfast. Sure enough, as the sun cracked the first light above the horizon, they all took off simultaneously and flew away.  What a sight to witness and photograph!

      Yes, you’re absolutely correct. You win (capture) some but lose (miss) some but just have to keep trying. Thank you for visit and comment, please stop by again.

      Thank you for your kind words. I have taken photos and occasionally short videos over the last ten years but still get excited to see them every time.

      Thank you for liking the pictures. Yes, the noise was loud but we were just delighted to hear it.

    Thank you, I love these two pictures as well. Just in case I don’t get the similar morning light with snow geese taking off, these two will be even more precious!
