[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This week has been a nice week for me.. Last Thursday i have started to make pictures of migrating Gooses. Today i was wandering if i could spot some more canadian gooses. After a few hours i got lucky, there was a large group of Canadian gooses, but also normal gooses in between them. I have taken several pictures, but this one was special to me, because it looks these two are mirored.. These in flight pictures can be hard te make, because you need to look at your focus and the composition aswell you have only a split of second..

Ha Olger,

Dit is echt goed! Unbelievable timing. Prachtig gewoon.


Erg mooie foto. Gewoon eenvoudig , maar dat maakt deze foto zeer bijzonder. Je zou haast denken dat de ganzen elkaar raken bij het vliegen.
groeten Jan-Arie

This must be one of the photos a lot of people on TL wish they had taken. Not only, Olger, you have managed to get two Canada geese in sharp focus but the composition is superb with one bird above the other and their wings in two different positions. Well done!
