|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The Snow Goose (Chen caerulescens), also known as the Blue Goose, is a North American species of goose. Its name derives from the typically white plumage. The genus of this bird is disputed. The American Ornithologists' Union and BirdLife International place this species and the other "white" geese in the Chen genus, while other authorities place it in the more traditional "grey" goose genus Anser.

Note: this is a re-post where I removed disturbing geese in the BG. Comapared to the original, the final version looks better.

A fine in-flight capture of a Snow Goose taking off after feeding (as shown by the dirt on its face).
The focusing is good, the difficult lighting well managed and the composition with the two other OOF geese interesting.

Wow! such a beautiful goose and well taken in flight image. I tried a couple of times to photograph them this year but hunting season did not help. I will try again next time they migrate back to the spot, hopefully I can get there before hunting season begins. In th emeantime I'll enjoy your wonderful capture. :)
