Snow Geese at Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge

Although we didn’t see the large flocks of Snow Geese that we had hoped to see at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge, I did manage to get a few shots of them that I was happy with.

The low sunrise light actually seemed to highlight this flock,

setting them off from the grass in the foreground and background.

Unfortunately the clouds on the horizon made for fickle lighting, and the Snow Goose

doesn’t stand out like the geese in the previous shot.

This Snow Goose on the other side of the road, though, seemed perfectly illuminated.

Although I missed a lot of shots of Geese flying directly overhead, I did manage to catch this shot.
