Looks like E.P.P. geese mixed in with the swans, eh Wayne? They usually start flying through "west of Alex" around this time and for the next couple of weeks.

This is the only group of fowl I located this afternoon. I was thinking that there would be more migrators after the high north/northwest winds and snow... but not so much.

Nice shot, I think after yesterday's weather the northerners will be thinking about coming down.

Steve the lens is great. You do need to get a little closer than I had anticipated. And being fat and old is now making that a little more of a challenge. Shooting with a lens is becoming more of a work-out than shooting with a 20ga.

Wayne, just trade it in for Canon's new 800mm f5.6L IS. That'll reach out and touch some waterfowl. Or better yet, shell out $90,000 for Canon's custom made 1200mm f5.6L. Of course you need to buy a jeep with a machine gun mount to use as a tripod for that mother. gringringrin

You could buy a house in our town for that price. Although it is slightly less than a decent used tractor. grin

Steve at your suggestion I tried the Canon custom 1200mm. I had to return it... Even with good duct-tape I could not keep that beast attached to my point & shoot camera.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
