Snow Geese

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 5 March 2016 in Animal & Insect.

There were hundreds of snow geese getting ready for their spring migration north. They were very noisy. Seeing them take off was quite a sight. It happened after dusk when the light was not very good for photographs.

Last year, Turku Ruissalo geese flock was common descendant of snow geese and Barnacle Geese. It is among the Barnacle seen in other species, such as the brent goose, greylag goose and Red-breasted Goose. Your photos brought to mind the geese will soon return to their migratory journey. Then it is almost summer. This photo was good grabber.

A fine capture of this dense group of geese. I would have thought they'd fly.
