In Flight

Texture: Kim's "golden" (one of my go-to textures) blended in multiply at 75%; brushed texture away from geese; levels adjustment on texture only

There are a lot of Canada Geese at my lake. They have their specific places where they hang out. I often hear them flying over our house - they always make a lot of noise while flying. However, the biggest noise (at least in my opinion) they make when they are about to land in the middle of the lake. You can hear them early enough to get your camera ready and try to photograph them in flight - not always easy. 
   

I love how these two came down almost simultaneously - as if they want to win the "simultaneous flight" in the Canada Geese Olympics! It is amazing to watch - and just pretend you hear them, too.


Almost there. And when they land, they just stop. Period. Can you imagine that with our airplanes?


I'm linking up with Kim's "Texture Tuesday".

Great shots. I can really hear them. They are very loud! (And messy.)

You've done a good job here, Carola. I find it very hard to shoot birds whether they're flying or whether they're still.

They are beautiful. We often see them flying low above our house.

Die Bilder sind wirklich schön , mit der Textur sieht es etwas herbstlicher aus . Bei mir tummeln sich auch den ganzen Winter über Gänse am Bodden.

I have some idéa of starting a Bird art meme. If I can fine more people that would like it.
Next weeks edition of NF DAM will have the optional theme "Birds". Maybe you would like to join in that one.
