That very nice pale background is perfect to show those guys in flight. It is always a real pleasure to look at a group of geese in flight. Lots of different poses and some have a funny and unusual pose.

Thank you so much Yves. That's so true, you see some pretty weird poses as they take flight sometimes and it can make for some really interesting photos. I love to watch and hear them in flight.. nature at her finest in my opinion.

Nicely composed Heather. You captured the geese lifting off the water perfectly. I like that the geese are flying towards you creates a little drama to the shot.

Thank you so much Debra. It's always quite a sight to see and I tried to upload an overhead photo of the whole flock but it didn't go through so I might try again soon.

Although I stopped my vehicle a fair distance away and stayed in it this group of Canada geese became alarmed by my presence and flew right towards my camera.
