Wings on the Water

We love to watch the Canada Geese as they take off and land on the lake. It's not easy getting a good picture of that action though. My digital camera mechanism does not move as fast as geese do. Even a split-second delay between the time I press the shutter and the time it actually clicks is too long - the goose has flown away.


  1. Beautiful pictures! It's always amazing to me when these huge birds actually become airborne!

  2. Thanks for the comments. I find it amazing too, both when they become airborne and when they splash down.
