Canadian Geese

I photographed this small gaggle of Canada Geese rising from my lake in this morning's light snowstorm. In a sequence of about a dozen shots I got as they circled away from and then back over me, they look all out of sorts until the shots taken within a few hundred yards of this one, when they get good and synchronized and ready for a long haul -- probably to a pond two or three miles away, as this is likely a resident group. But they'll arrive there in style, dammit.
