Week 42 - Patterns in Nature - Geese after Sunset

About 65 geese have been spending their day at the neighbors' pond then leave for parts unknown to me at dusk. I wanted to capture them flying in formation as they left the pond. I think I chased them away two nights ago. Last night they flew out just before sunset and I was not prepared. Tonight I waited about half an hour for their departure. The sun had already set and its rays were forming a gorgeous "V" as the geese took flight and got into their "V" formation. They move quickly. I got them in the viewfinder and held down the shutter button for whatever I could capture.
