Driving toward my brother in law's house by Stettler we saw some large white fowl on a slough. Thinking they could be swans we decided to take a closer look. They were not swans, but snow geese, and Canada geese. Quite a number of them. I readied my camera and approached:

Snow Geese


They were placidly swimming about not paying any attention to me at all. But ...

then I had to sneeze


Needless to say:

they took off.


First a few ...


and then they got word out to the others on the slough ...

Hundreds of them ...


needless to say I was quite excited ... I have not seen snow geese in the wild, and it was quite the spectacle.

What a cool set. Did you really sneeze!? :laughing::laughing::laughing:

Well, it gave you quite a spectacle to photograph and they turned out really nice. :thumbup::thumbup:

Nice set. Wow, that is a lot of geese.
As in .. if a tree falls in the forest does it make any noise ... If a Matt K walks by a slough does he make any noise. I guess the answer is yes.
