[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During my time at bosque del apache I didn't think I got any shots of the Ross geese, I'd seen em, but not while shooting. Then when I got home I looked through my pictures and saw this photo with two Ross geese in front and two 'regular' Snow geese at the back and bottom. The Ross gees are about 40% smaller (hard to see if you don't see them together, their necks are shorter, and if you look at their bills in the picture you can see that the front two have a grey and red bill, and the other two have an all red bill and 'teeth' like a grin

Hallo Jeroen
This is beautiful. It reminds me of aeroplanes flying in formation. Great to look at each individual's posture, facial expression and wing position. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Jeroen.
Grande scatto,mettere quattro volatili ha fuoco non una cosa semplice,stupendi i colori naturali ottima la composizione complimenti .
Ciao Marco.
