Snow geese, at Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge, Missouri. Mike Frazier and I drove there yesterday. The Refuge estimates one million snow geese are there now. For this comp, it was easy to keep the moon in the field of view and wait for the geese to fly by.
For this photo, I put the moon in the comp, full zoom, and waited for the birds to complete the composition.
