    Default Snow Geese on Fir Island

    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....)

    That first photo is spectacular. You could probably sell it to one of those companies that makes difficult giant jigsaw puzzles.

    Nice job, Terry. I have yet to get a big flock like that up close.

    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!
