Winged Migration
Photo By Jim Liestman

  • Title: Winged Migration
  • State/Province/Region: North Carolina
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge
  • Nearest Town: Plymouth
  • Brief Directions: Take highway 45 from Plymouth, NC for about 28 miles.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: This picture is on Lake Pongo in the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. These are migrating snow geese blasting up off the lake. In the foreground are Tundra Swans. These geese migrate about 3000 miles from the Arctic Ocean. They feed on grain in the farm lands and then return to the lake. We arrived at the lake before sunrise, as the blast-off usually occurs right at sunrise. This day they decided to wait until mid-morning before they all ascended into the sky.
  • Gear: Nikon D700 D, Nikkor 80-400

    Thanks Laura! It's up in the area you also enjoy visiting/photographing, there in the Eastern Sierras! I can't wait for a few more weeks to go start chasing the Fall colors! I look forward to...
