This was taken one sunny winter evening at Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge while literally hundreds of Snow Geese were returning to a small pond. The back / sidelight was just gorgeous and I snapped shot after shot of these fantastic birds as they came in to stake out a spot for the night.
Most of the attempts were misses – sometimes focus was a bit off, sometimes framing was, sometimes I didn’t like the background, sometimes the birds were just too far away. However, every now and then everything comes together and you capture a really cool moment.
I like to think this is one of those kinds of shots
