Hi Folks , today I have this in-flight of a pair of Canada Geese. I got this pair as I was walking away from the red-winged blackbirds from my recent uploads , I heard them through the bushes honking a protest from some upset in the pond (real or imagined ;-D who can say with Canada geese :-D lol...) the two took flight and circled the pond twice before flying away , the first pass I just watched , I have a lot of geese photos already , but as they flew I liked the way they where banking in their circle so on the second past decided 'what the heck...' and took the shot...

sometimes I wonder if the Geese honking is like a song to them , if it is it must have melodramatic lyrics LOL...

thanks for having a look

Hi Art

Fantastic shot, everything is perfect. Great catch.


Stunning, stunning capture, lucky Art! Well done great synchrony between the bird almost unrealistic like a digitally manipulated image! Fantastic Point of view, colors and sharpness. Your 300mm, f/4 shines again! Well done Art, I am really enjoying this image, my friend!

Hi Art,
Your capture looks like poetry in motion, but with their bills open it probable didn't sound like poetry. Excellent capture Art, thanks for sharing this beauty.

Love this syncronized flight look Art. You captured a rare moment. Nice to see. TFS Trevor
