These are Greater White-fronted Geese. They are a deep Arctic species, and I may never see them again. Many people have been trying to capture these and we were just at the right place at right time. Driving down road and saw them coming over us, stopped car, and I jumped out and took these, handheld, no time for tripod.

Thanks to all for the wonderful compliments. I find myself very fortunate to have been able to see, let alone photograph, these rarities.

I'm struck by this thread and the thread with the blue birds: It seemed to me from what you reported as if it's possible that the birds seek you out, knowing you will do them justice... Wonderful shots for sure.

Thank you so much for the undeserved praise MBrager.:o I am just glad to be able to share some shots that some may not get the chance to see themselves, and hopefully most get the same enjoyment viewing them, as I do sharing them.
