Panic of Snow Geese

It does not matter how many times you see a panic of Snow Geese, it always sends chills up your back and overwhelms your senses. The motion, the noise of wings and calls, the swirl of it, the thunder, stirs something in us that reaches back behind our rational being, and makes children of us all. You feel like clapping and laughing and crying and jumping up and down. Honest. the picture does not convey the half of it…the quarter of it. Of course, if you are going to try to catch it with a camera you have to resist the urge to jump up and down…even to laugh. And the sound of your shutter has to do for clapping. 🙂 Sony RX10iv in my custom flight mode. 1/1000th @ f5 @ ISO 100. Processed in Polarr.
