Morning Flyout At Sunrise
Photographer: Paul Speaker
Location: Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico, USA
The Snow Geese congregate by the thousands on the ponds of the refuge. At about the time the sun rises above the horizon, the birds rise in a swelling cloud of cacophony and flapping of wings, as if on cue. These birds are headed for the fields north of the refuge, and will return before sunset.
