Jan 24, 2011 - Snow geese in flight
it's been a while since I shot some snow geese ! we have been going to Bosque in Jan the last 2 yrs and most of the snow geese leave early while the sandhill cranes stay on till Feb or so.. but this year, wow, huge numbers for this time of the yr, about 40K of them, all of them huddling together in a pond, and flying together often :) it was a wonderful sight to see !
thank you for all the wonderful comments on my crane shot !

Each morning at Bosque, the sandhill cranes take off one after the other amidst the morning glow from a crane pond. the crane pond is strategically placed on the west side against the Bosque mountains to get some beautiful morning light..made for the photographer :)
