On our way across the valley toward Orland, we came across huge flocks of snow geese. I didn't realize it at the time, but they were in the Llano Seco Unit of the Sacramento River National Wildlife Refuge. We circled above the geese for several minutes and I was able to get a number of fantastic images.
This is my favorite aerial photo of the geese - so far. Many more images to go through.
The geese were numberless when they took flight. It was breath-taking.
The flocks of snow geese were huge!
This is a nice 'close up' - we had to stay high enough to avoid potential collisions!

Snow geese as seen from above - I love this image too
There are many more photos of the snow geese at Llano Seco still to be processed. I'm sure there will be another post in the next couple of weeks!
