Felt bad about just driving by a huge flock of geese who had paused to rest and feed in this field. It's hunting season and they take off in a panic when anyone approaches. It gave me some nice shots, but I wish it didn't have to be this way!

    Beautiful picture, like me you take your wildlife shots with a camera. Back in my hunting days deer were my quarry, I never did hunt for geese.
