Bosque Del Apache Visitor Center, New Mexico 1, San Antonio, NM, United States
As we stood in the parking lot of the Bosque del Apache Vistor Center, we heard many wings flapping and looked up to see hundreds of Snow Geese. This picture shows only a portion of how many birds were really there!
Week 9: Birds in Flight
So many geese!
Wow – what a fantastic experience! The sounds from the birds must have been amazing.
A wonderful capture of taking flight!
Nice composition, per your usual.
Such a cool photo!!! To capture all those birds flying in the air, what a neat experience to see and hear — birds of a feather, fly together!!
Quite a sight and sound! Hope you had a fun time.
Wonderful capture of an enormous flock! I can almost hear them as I view the picture. Good composition and resolution. Good job, Vivian!

Talk about a flock of birds! Wonder what they’re telling each other.
Where’s Waldo, Viv!?!
Great picture with movement and grace. What an experience when they all took off–I remember that day. You were so amazed, I’m surprised you got such a great shot.
Amazing, exciting and thrilling!! I have never seen such a slight of thouands birds in flight.
Where are they going? Pray for their safe flying.
