[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The picture reminded me of the stories of Nils Holgerson, the litle fellow who traveled at the back of gooses.. Funny thing was that these gooses are migrating with the canadian gooses. The only thing is that they seem to stick together.. Like they are a litle group within the big group of gooses and they behave like that.. I love to see all the migrating birds and wandering where there journey will lead to..
(litle black pieces flying around are litle drops of mud)

Wat een leuke foto !!
geinig die ganzen met hun lompe pootjes.
ik denk dat Niels in zweden zit maar zeker ben ik daar niet van.
groetjes Lia

Beautiful scene well captured. You probably have a bit of dust on the sensor (dark specks on the right), which will be less noticeable at a smaller f/stop (but then DOF is smaller-not good for bird shots).

Hi Olger, very nice in-flight-
I don't see Nils and where is Akka, in the front maybe.;))
Good details and exposure. Well composed and nice colours.
Well done.

Great shot, Olger. Such good details on the wings of this flock of flying geese. Nice composition. Well done and TFS. : )

"Nils Holgerson
vliegt op zijn gans naar de zon
Nils Holgerson
komt in het najaar weer om"

Wat vond ik dat een geweldige serie! :) Prachtige foto Olger, erg goed gedaan. klemmg bedoelt niet de brokken die van hun poten afvliegen, maar de heel vage lichtgrijze plekken onderin het beeld. Het zijn er vrij veel, wel 15 ofzo. Ik denk dat het vlekjes op je filter zijn ipv dust op de sensor. Ze zitten er wel degelijk, maar zijn gemakkelijke weg te klonen.

Anyway, the picture is great! :) Well done & TFS!

Belle prise nature, l'éclairage et la netteté font bien ressortir les détails des oiseaux.

Félicitations et merci pour l'envoie.

Olger, I enjoy this picture.

It's always great to shoot a bird flying; even greater to get some of them at the same time.

Great composition and lighting.

I added your picture to a theme of mine.
