The Geese


This is one of my favorite pictures. I shot it in our backyard several years ago. We were living out in the country,
one of the best places I have ever lived. There was a pond a stone's throw from the back deck.

One Sunday afternoon these Canada Geese stopped in for a visit. We were watching a movie and heard their honking. Grabbed a long lens and went out the door. It was raining, not sure if the rain brought them down, or just time for a break.

Deborah and I watched them for over an hour. I had shot a bunch of pictures, but this was the one I was waiting for. These guys honking and flapping as they prepared to launch is so awesome. I hear them every time I look at this picture.

When you know a photo is coming, take the time to wait for it. I have folks tell me all the time about photos they didn't take time to get. So many wonderful memories looking at this photo, but no idea what the movie was we left to watch the geese.
