I am lucky enough to live in an area that the geese migration is close enough to me that I can here them flying over mid-town on their way south. Its a beautiful site I only wish I had the exsperiance to truely do it justice.

Very cool shot!

One of the few photos to show a lot of birds in the shot, which I really like. I think this would be better if you used all 300 pixels, and if you cropped it to just the sky.

Nice capture, image size is a bit small, would like to see it bigger to get a really good look. I like the black n white, depth is good, 6.

I like this shot just because there is so much to see. Not sure that it fits the 'portrait' part of the challenge though.

This is really a neat shot. I am impressed with the effect of having such a deep DOF for the flock - they are mostly all in focus.

Very cool image. I was next to a large lake last night but didn't have time to stop and take a similar photo. Good work.

Absolutely captures the moment. Although I do like this image, the southern view of a north-bound bird isn't really very appealing.

I like it but may get DNMCs for not having "a" bird in focus!
