This morning gave me the opportunity to once again greet the dawn. Hoping for a brilliant colorful sunrise as the weather forecast called for storm tonight; I was disappointed when the eastern sky took on only a tinge of pink. As a back-up I headed to a nearby lake in time to watch the Canada Geese leaving.
This shot was only a small portion of the flock numbering in the hundreds as they lifted off.
In my youth Canada Geese did not live in our area and were only seen during their spring and fall migrations. Today a flourishing resident population provides watching and photographic opportunities year around.
