What a great shot, Chris! I know I should know, being a Washingtonian, but are they just passing through or do they stay around? I'd love to see them! Congratulations on a beautiful sight for sure!

Now that's a lot of birds in one place...! Congrats on the POTD!

Joyce - These are migratory bird that winter on Fir Island and Skagit Bay from late October through early Match. I just go up there and drive around until I spot them. Then you need to wait until something spooks them and they all get up in the air. It is a magnificent sight when that occurs.

Chris, I went up to Fir Island last January to "shoot geese". I agree; it's quite a sight (and noisy, too!). Congrats on your POTD- great shot!

A very smooth and flowing composition. Great shot Chris. The Snow Geese stand out so beautifuly with those soft background details, it really draws my eye into the image. Congrats!
