About a week ago, I ventured north to Fir Island on the Skagit Flats near Conway. My friend, Bob Stevens meet me there and we ventured forth.
As luck would have it, we found the larges flock I have ever seen near the roadway.

(Its worth clicking on the individual pictures for a closer look....)

When to wear a hat! I have the green spots on my 500, hat, and car :)

Another closer view the flock. No need for super long telephotos :)

Wow! I've seen flocks of snow geese take off en masse, but never gotten a shot of them as densely packed as that first one... amazing shot, Terry! is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
