Take-off

Thanks for your views and comments - appreciate that!

Oh I know it's been done before, but I've always wanted to get this shot! Special thanks go to geese, who met my expectations fully.
If you bother to view it large, then there is this lovely couple in the middle.
Stunning capture - the geese really pop out of the picture!

Love this. A long time ago I sometimes went birdwatching with a friend. Winter was a great time because thousands of geese would gather in Flanders (a part of Belgium) which lay on their migration route. The sheer number and the noise they made was astonishing.

There's a gaggle of geese! I can hear them honking. Nice shot

@peeliks :D Ei, ma hiilisin autoga nii ettevaatlikult neile lähemale ja mind nad ometi autos ei näinud! See pidi küll see teine auto olema, mis nad mööda kihutades lendu ehmatas :D Näe, nad lendavad ju lausa minu poole! :D

@saranna Thanks Sarah!
@andrewrome365 Thanks David! Made me happy!
@sabine @jgpittenger Thanks! I was so exited, that I don't recall hearing their noise, or they must have been the quietest geese ever!

Outstanding capture, Sassik! I think most of us would love to get a shot like this, too!

@paulat10 Thanks! It's taken some 25 km from Tallinn. I spotted the geese yesterday evening on their regular hangout (these days) by the highway and couldn't resist! Little detour and voilà!

@socalgal Thanks Patty!
@marlboromaam Thanks Maggie! I think the hardest part is to find the geese, when you are looking! It gets easier once you know where they tend to hang out - then you just need something to spook them :p
@ladyjane Thanks ladyjane! Your praise on my focus makes me happy!

Fantastic shot! You captured them all in the air, mid flight and the focus is spot on. Great job :-)
