[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Every year I visit the middlecreek wildlife management area in Pennsylvania to see the snow geese who stop there on their migration to the arctic. Some years as many as 200,000 geese stop there. This picture is just a part of a large flock which suddenly took off all at once. I took many pictures but this one caught the excitement best.

Hello Peter,
This is a great shot of these beautiful Snow Geese. The detail is tac sharp and the colors are natural and vivid. I love the way you captured their wings in a myriad of poses. You must have gotten pretty close in order to get such a wonderful image as this.
I have never seen a Snow Goose in the wild, but now that I know they are in Pennsylvania, I may have to make a quick trip over to check them out. Super job!!!

Hello Peter,
Great image bring back some memories of April when we were at Freezeout Lake, Montana. This is an awe inspiring sight and you have captured it superbly.

Whoa that's a really clear picture for them flying! Fabulous!
