DIC Photo of the Day - Snow Geese

'Snow Geese' was selected as the Picture of the Day at the Digital Image Cafe for today, May 21, 2009.

Bosque Del Apache, New Mexico, New Years eve day, there can be no better place to be (at least for me). Birds by the thousands giving one photo op after another. It was such a neat place, I plan to return again at the end of this year.

Snow Geese were the most notable of all the bird species that call this their winter home. They traveled in large flocks, although you wouldn't necessarily know that by this image, that seemed to have a mind of it's own.

This image was made in the evening as a flock of snow geese were gathering at one of the many ponds in the refuge. These waterfowl as well as Sandhill Cranes fly into these ponds every evening where they sleep protected from their predators.
