Sunday Spotlight

 

                    Tundra Swans in flight preparing for their spring migration .They fly in large flocks over our house every fall and spring it is a beautiful sight and sound , some are low enough you can hear the wind through their wings  ! I usually hear them before I see them  as they have a distinct honk that echo's in the sky's coldness !

                                         Silhouette  of Canadian Geese  .

       More  Tundra Swans in spring flight but if you look closely there is one that's just not like the others !

                                Yup there is a Canadian Goose flying with them !

                                             Until next time have a good day !

                                          Thanks For Popping By !

Those are great shots. I don't think I've ever seen a swan in flight before. I haven't seen many on land either.

Wow, how do you get such great pictures of birds in flight? Gorgeous! Does that Canada goose have a personality conflict? lol
