Morning Flyout At Sunrise
Photographer: Paul Speaker
Location: Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico, USA
Story: 
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.
