Nice! I've been there once and would love to return.

Thanks Nina, Oak Hammock Marsh is a great place to visit. Hopefully one day you will visit again.

Heather Mellon

Beautiful capture of these awesome flocks. They show very nicely against the soft sky tones here and no doubt it was exciting to hear them too.. noisy but nice!

Debra Plett

Thanks Heather, yes very noisy. I think they were actually excited to be on their way.

Interesting shot Debra. I like the piling up of colors from the bottom brown to the blue sky. And you got just the right timing to have the crowd of geese in the white portion of the picture. Nice, nice.

Debra Plett

Thanks Yves, I hadn’t planned it that way. I was looking the other direction...heard the noise and took a quick picture. Lucky shot that the geese were in the white section of the clouds.


a love the fall shot of the ducks so many

Thanks Jeff, during migration thousands of birds pass through Oak Hammock Marsh daily.

Looking out over the marsh hundreds of Canada Geese lifted up and took flight. It was early afternoon and the geese had rested and refueled and were moving on to the next leg of their journey.
