Umbrella time, NOW!!


Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe December 19, 2003

Here's the other one that would have been good if not for so much blurring. #81177

Theresa McCloskey December 19, 2003

how long did you have to wait to get these shots - terrific capture :-) #298333

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe December 19, 2003

All of them together took about 5 minutes or less. It was quite a sight. #298346

Joy Brown December 19, 2003

Claudia Kuhn level-classic December 19, 2003

Wow, sure are a lot of them! Nice series of shots Carolyn! Did you scare them to get them to fly??'

Jeff Robinson level-deluxe December 19, 2003

Almost snowing geese.... Great work Carolyn! It is always nice to see great things that nature has to offer and you captured it so well! Jeff #298386

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe December 19, 2003

Thanks Claudia and Jeff..Yes, Claudia, I guess I scared them. Who wouldn't be scared if they saw me sneaking up on them? #298399

Stephen Zacker December 19, 2003

Great capture. I like the blurring as it really gives the image a sense of movement! #298427

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe December 19, 2003

Thanks Stephen..I just thought there was too much of it. #298448

Thanks Paul!! #298479

Patricia A. Kuniega December 19, 2003

Wow! I'll bet you were freaking out as they took off! The sky is such a profusion of birds! And when you see those big guys flying towards you, look out!! #298574

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe December 19, 2003

Actually, they didn't really come towards me..They went up and then circled back away from me and lit again a few yards back. It was GREAT, though,to see them up like that. #298590

Charlene Bayerle December 19, 2003

Great capture Carolyn!!!! I think I would have ducked!!!!! #298602

Fantastic! What a great series of photos. I guess you didn't scare them too badly if they came back. #298606

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe December 19, 2003

Thanks Char and Susan..I guess they weren't too scared, they only went about 50 feet back from where they were in the first place.
I guess you aren't supposed to go off the road, but I didn't see the sign until after..Wanna buy a bridge?? #298625
