View Full Version : Geese in flight

03-Mar-08, 12:10
Yesterday we came across those lovely geese. Although I find it extremely hard to "shoot" flying birds I managed to get some decent shots that I wanted to share with you.
To the "advanced birdwatcher" they might look tirvial, but I am quite happy with them.
Maybe you guys could give me some tips as what to make better next time?


That one almost looks like a painting...


In that one I really loved the colours and pattern of the feathers...

I'm sure the geese prefer that you shoot with a 'Canon' and not a 12 bore.:lol::lol:

Geese breed on tundra.
They are headed for Greenland via Iceland. The flight to Iceland is a non stop 24 hour journey, then after recuperating its another non stop journey to Greenland.

Wow, these photos are fantastic.

Did you do some digiscoping or was this with the camera only?

Like both pictures, especially love the second one though.

Fantastic pics.
