Snow Geese TakeOff At BWR

It was a Good Day for Snow Geese last weekend at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. This image is just a quite small section of the flock taking off. I was using a 400mm lens with a 1.4X teleconverter so with the Snow Geese not that far away, I was only getting smaller areas of the huge wave of Snow Geese taking flight. I had not seen them there for quite a few years. So when I saw large amounts on the Blackwater bird count list we went to see what we could find. There was a huge gathering on Snow Geese right off the Wildlife Drive. Actually one of the largest flocks I had seen at Blackwater. It was interesting in that when they took off in mass, they kinda went up mad a circle and landed again. So we saw about 4 or 5 “Lift-Offs” in a couple of hours.
