Blast Off

Here is a blast off of geese from San Bernard NWR. There were a few thousand of them hanging out in a pond near the road.  Got there about 1/2 hr before sunrise.  They all lifted off at once just after sunrise.  Took this shot out the car window.  Slowed the action down by using shutter priority at 1/6 sec.  Panned with the birds and got lots of blur with some more defined heads of the geese.  The wind was just right and they flew directly in front of me.  Bailed out of the car to get more shots as they flew by.  I love the sight and sound of the blast off.  I’m always tempted to take a video of the blast off with my 7D but don’t want to pass up the still shots.
