These Canada Geese came across the lake close to the water and kept going. The blurred background is a result of a slow shutter speed. I had not expected to take this shot. I was actually shooting some stationary subjects when I saw them coming. I did not have time to change my settings, so I just fired. What I got was this special photo.
