In my hometown we have a "slough" that is a perfect gathering spot for all kinds of birds, but mainly Canadian Geese. In the Fall it is amazing how many birds can be there at one time. This shot was a quieter day because most of the birds had left already. I approached through the bushes on the shoreline and startled a group. I like to think they were taking off, in this shot, to warmer weather while we stay here and endure it.
