Skywatch: Canada Sky




Making the approach for landing, a flock of Canada geese grace the bright winter sky.

This image is from Maryland’s beautiful Delmarva Peninsula. The Delmarva derives its name from the three states who in part occupies it; Delaware, Maryland and Virginia

Wonderful shot! I had two geese fly directly over my head this afternoon but no camera. When will I learn! You obviously have!

Beautiful! Both sky and geese! I live near by a lake in Oslo where Candaian geese come every spring. It's a joy to visit the lake and see them and other birds. I see you have a lot of wonderful photos of birds on your blog - this is my first visit! I enjoyed it!

I am glad to see they are coming home!

Not to sound like a broken record but wonderful shot Salty. Spring must be getting close if they are flying home. Hope you have a wonderful Friday!

Craig Glenn said...

LOL, at first I thought you were in Canada, and I was like hey they don't let us southern boys up in there!

Great shot. Also I see a lot familar faces have found their way to your blog. Kallen is a joy and Abe is the best.

Great post Salty,

A great capture as always Coy.

You mentioned the use of flash on my site (by the way thanks for the great comments) it is not something that I normally use, the guy I was with used his alott and sugested it. If you check out Ken Congers gear I think he uses his often. He even shows an attatchment for long lens. I think I will invest in one. I guess the hard part is reading the light and knowing when to use it as a fill in flash. I know I plan to try it more often in hopes of better results.

You know you and your brother can get me in trouble, I just mentioned to my wife of your recent trip and the need to go there sometime.

Next time you go to Florida go to the Viera wetlands, amazing place and almost certain to see some gators up close.

They are just beautiful in flight. The sound of their wings is so haunting...

I'm always a big sentimental, being a Marylander, that Delaware wasn't just included as a part of Maryland. Is it too late?

Always brilliant birds.

Rose said...

A lot of the geese have left here...I miss seeing them every day. Your shot reminds me of airplanes flying in formation.

Ivar Ivrig said...

Wonderful choice for SWF. In some weeks these geese will return to Norway. That is a real sign of spring for me.
Have a great weekend :-)
