Snow Goose Taking Flight
- Title: Snow Goose Taking Flight
- State/Province/Region: New Mexico
- Country: United States
- Nearest Town: Socorro
- Description: I captured this image one sunny January evening at Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.
The snow geese were there in force, and this little pond had a lot of activity going on. The birds were coming and going, trying to decide where to stay for the night and I was just happily snapping away during all their indecision :)
As the sun dropped lower, I couldn’t help but notice that at some angles there was some pretty sweet backlight going on. So, while the geese were coming and going in all directions, I setup for a shot where I could get a cool backlit shot of one as he swooped by.
It took a few frames (OK, fine, it took dozens of frames), but I finally caught this shot as this guy was heading out.
