Skywatch: Geese Heading North

Geese Heading North

For days I've been hearing the honking of geese on the wing. I was heading to a friends' house when I had to wait on the Ballard bridge for few minutes while it let a boat through. I shot this from my car window as this foursome chattered by. You can take a look at the skies all over the world today via [swf3.jpg] Friday.

This ABQ girl has been checking & checking--and the geese flying north were well worth the wait, especially as the photo brings to mind (sniff, sniff) so many times, waiting at the Montlake Cut and luxuriating in the smells, sounds and sights. Thanks Kim.

Beautiful picture. I like the fact that the geese are sharper than the rest of the photo!

That is really a wonderful shot! Both for SkyWatch and the viewers!
The goose stand out in the photo - but the background is simply gorgous!

Great capture! Unfortunately, the geese in our city are now year-round residents. Your silhouette makes them look so charming. Love the geometry in the bottom 1/3 of your photo!

We sure have been having beautiful skies lately. My little honkers are getting big and probably will be leaving sometime next month. MB

Thank you so much for each of your comments! It is fun to meet new friends in the Skywatch community and I hope to visit more of you as time allows this weekend. I'm glad you enjoyed this shot. It seems every sunset and sunrise right now is very photo worthy. I love this time of year! MB, I hope you will take another photo of your little family before they take off!

Gorgeous sunset! But I think it is the geese who have the best view.
