Being under a huge cloud made of thousands of flapping birds is an awesome experience! That's what I had a couple of days ago when a humungous flock of snow geese stopped in the outskirts of Katy, Texas, for a break.

Amazing view!
Nice framing and POV.
Great moment you captured there!

I don't think snow geese are endangered! I've seen flocks like this in California too. It is an amazing sight. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Evelynn : )

What a spectacle.
A great capture.
Very well focused too.
A real eye catcher, your register, I mean.
Very well presented & with GREAT clarity.
Best regards, Mario.

Hola Edgar.
Es un placer de encontrar un paisano y aun mas, saber que vive en los Estados Unidos y que como yo tambien es de Cali..
Felicitacione por la foto, me parece estupenda.
Es una composicion muy buena y muy bien realizada por la coloracion, detalles y enmarcacion.
Saludos y bienvenido a TN

Hi Edgar,
What a stunning experience, and I can almost hear the noise of all those wings flapping. The panorama like composition worked perfectly.

Impressive scene....

Hi Edgar, this is amazing. I can only imagine what it would be like taking this shot. I have never seen this many birds before, live or in a shot like this one. You've done a great job of composing and presenting this to us. You really should try a large post of this one. I would so much like to hit the enlarge button here.

Thanks, John

Oportuna y bella captura Edgar mostrándonos una inusual escena.
Me gusta el encuadre y el punto de vista obtenido con una estética presentación para TN, bajo difíciles condiciones lumínicas.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Hi Edgar,
Lovely... I'd love to see something like this. Colors, contrast,light,composition and your presentation are very good. TFS
Best wishes,

Hello Edgar!
This picture is not only a very nice for watching, beautiful picture, but also a very interesting documentary photo. Geese are presented both during a break and in flight what make a very nice composition. It had to be a fantastic experience to observe so huge numebr of birds in one place :)
Picture ahs lovely colours and very nice contrast (yellow-orange tone of grass, and white-blue sky + birds). The only thing wich I would add to this presentation is some more facts about this bird :)
Best withes from Poland,

incredible shot, so much gees!
