#278 shades of Gray


Today was a day come true! Sunny, warm, and very little wind. On my late afternoon walk I saw these migrating geese feeding on a field. I carefully approached them, got well down below them and snapped away. To my surprise, it was not me that made them nervous but the bald eagle flying over head.

  1. What a great shot. How did you train that Bald eagle to circle overhead?

  2. What a great pic - love the white background on this - makes the geese stick out that much more!

  4. Great shot! I just love the way all the heads are up and trained in different directions. You can just feel the sense of watchfulness.

  5. A very fun photo and I can imagine that the bald eagle was more frightening to them than you were.
