  • Geese in Flight, posted 2013-02-02

    Spent part of my time out this morning trying (with minimal success) to capture some images of geese in flight.  About half of the geese were walking or resting on ice while the other half were on open water.  These images show some take offs in both and then a couple of shots as the geese gained altitude.  Most were simply moving to another body of water a few hundred yards away.  (Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary, West Alton, MO)

    Got out to shoot this morning for the first time in a couple of weeks (Did I say I hate being sick?) and managed to get a few good images.  The number of eagles along the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers seems to be up a little and provided several opportunities for shots of both mature and immature birds although they were often behind small branches or limbs.  This mature eagle was near the marina in Grafton, IL.
