Nice photos! I particularly like the first picture, where you captured some of the snow geese in the air and some on the ground.

Spectacular shots of the Snow Geese! What a thrill it must be to see so many amassed in one location!

Beautiful snow geese (this post and the mosaic below). We saw them twice in Bosque Del Apache,New Mexico -- during the Fall flyover both times. One of our most memorable birding experiences ever.

Eileen! they are beautiful! I have only seen them from far away up in the sky. What a wondrous moment to be so close to see these beauties!

You had a spectacular day! I've seen large numbers of snow geese wintering in the Skagit Valley in Washington, but I don't think there were this many at any one time. Nice photo work, and congrats on your lifer.
