Canada Geese

This image was made on our last day at the Bosque. We were on the farm loop just north of the connector when we spied this group of Canada Geese. They were fun to watch, it was as if they were on stage putting on a show for an audience (which they were actually). I made about twenty exposures, most of them more tightly framed than this one, but this is my favorite.

Equipment: Nikon D200, Nikon 80–400 mm zoom lens, 81A warming filter.

Camera settungs: f 22, 1/25th sec., ISO 400.

Processing: Contrast, clarity, vibrance, and saturation adjustments in Lightroom, curves adjustment in Photoshop.
