Splash Down!!

Monday July 14, 2014

Williams, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I was so fortunate to be standing at the East end of Heron Pond when the geese came in from the lower pasture right across me. It was wonderful to watch and be able to FINALLY catch some geese in flight.

You didn't just catch them in flight, but in every stage of the splashdown!
Great shot, Julia! When you FINALLY do something, you do it right!

And yes, I see the aqua color in the wake of the landing birds! Very cool!

Thanks, Heidrun.

It is the first time I have successfully captured the
geese as they either land or take off from the pond.
I was thrilled when I saw them and even more so
when I uploaded to computer and found clear
images of them.

Wonderful, beautiful photo. The overall greens accentuated by the blue areas make this a really artistic pleasing photo.
