I went back to the Klamath Basin to see if I could get photos of the migrating Snow geese and got very lucky. I happened to be at the right place at the right time in several instances and was able to shoot very large flocks of Snow Geese lifting off the water and off farm fields. It was an amazing sight and the sound was deafening. Sometimes I just had to lower the camera to take it all in. Beautiful sight and sound as these birds filled the sky.

WOW!!! Amazing captures! I can’t even imagine how loud they sounded!
Thanks Susan! 🙂 It has to be heard to be believed.
Great photo, Alison. I can almost hear the thunder of wings! I would love to have seen that.
Thanks Jo Ann. I would have loved for you to have seen it. 🙂
Isn’t this a truly amazing sight to see? Absolutely love the first image from them leaving the water.
Thank you so much! It truly was a moving experience. One I will never forget.
My first thought on the first picture, was AMAZING! Beautiful photos Alison!
Thank you RJ. 🙂
Fantastic snow geese photos. I haven’t seen that many birds since working on Assateague Island many years ago. They’ve been moving through my area in central New York but have yet to find them in the fields. Thanks!
Thanks Nick. I got really lucky with those photos. It was my first time looking for Snow Geese. I have studied up on them now and will be trying to photograph them as they move through Nevada and northern California in the Spring and Fall from now on. It was an incredible experience to see and hear them.
Nice photos. I like the middle one the best. Something about filling the frame with BIF I really find attractive.
Thanks Mark. I am partial to that one myself.
We encountered this blizzard of Snow Geese back in February at the Lower Klamath national wildlife refuge. I didn’t think it was possible to capture what the experience looked like, but you came really close!
Thank you. Yes it is difficult to capture such a force of nature but we try. Sometimes I just had to put the camera down and take it all in. 🙂
