geese at sunset



Geese. Swimming away into a Tennessee Valley sunset. Ahhhh. Lovely. Tranquil.

It's a picturesque image albeit somewhat deceiving. They were actually paddling away as fast as they can from the telephoto lens-less man with the camera. I have a lot of photos of birds fleeing, including many pictures of empty branches two seconds after the songbird has flown. I'm thinking of publishing a book called "A Moment too Late."

Watch for it.

"A Moment Too Late" -- wonderful title for a birdwatcher's book! Add it to the shelf with "Birds That Don't Exist."
