Wonderful series! Love seeing and hearing geese fly over.

the first one makes me laugh - love the curved wings and rubber feet dragging for a landing. the 3rd is classic flight pattern. the 2nd and 4th just have the most amazing feather detail! the last one w/ sharp eye and neck feathers - just awesome, brian!

You captured these Canadas beautifully!

You continue to amaze me with your work. These are really awesome captures!
Have a wonderful week Brian.

All of your images are awesome, but that last shot is spectacular!!! I learned in my birding class that it's Canada Goose, not Canadian. Ooops, I've been saying that wrong for years. :/

The ones that spend Winter on the field near us have all gone now so it was nice to see your pictures. From Findlay

INcredible flight shots! I have a love-hate relationship with Canada geese. This post definitely tips the scale to love! (Hate's really too strong a word -- we just have too much goose poo on the ground where we stay in Oregon. They never migrate and there are zillions of them on the Lake there.)

HI Brian This shots are out standing especially the last one.

Great Pictures , they have just arrived here. Very early ..

Pamela Gordon said...

These are fabulous shots of the Canadas. Are they on their way 'home' for the summer? They'd better wait a few weeks I think. lol

EagleAye said...

Awesome pics of the geese in flight. You really captured their beauty well.

Awesome shots. I love the curve of their wings and the shot where they are flying in the V.

I love the Canada Geese and these are great shots of them in flight. I like the last one because it is so clear and this little goose looks even a little plump which is nice to see at this time of year. Seems like they weathered the winter well.

ALL of these are great captures! Don't have a favorite cause I enJOY all of them. Wide wing span, close-up... breathtaking....right there with him and enJOYed the formation shots too.

Great flight shots.

Wally Jones said...

Splendid photographs, Brian!
These birds are always impressive, whether alone on the shore, floating on a lake or high overhead.

Very nice!

People don't like Canada Geese around here. I am not in that group, however. I think they are interesting birds who deserve to have a place to live just like we do. After all, if you trace it back, it is our fault that they poop on golf courses. There I've said it. I love your pictures!

TheChieftess said...

Fabulous captures!!!

Ida said...

Wow! These shots are breathtaking. That last one I could almost feel the rush of it's wings just looking at your shot.

Chris Rohrer said...

No matter how much I see them, I always smile. They relax my mind and add a little fun to the birding.

Jen said...

Wow! I dream of being able to take flight shots like that. Amazing!
