Geese and ducks Lubbock, Texas

In Lubbock for a work project and trying to find locations for photography.

 

The Geese and ducks are coming through town for migration and this neighborhood pond was crowded with the birds. Not a lot of water out here so their choices are pretty limited.

 

Unfortunately, my max lens was 105 MM so hard to get much of a closeup. They were quite noisy at takeoff.

    There's nothing like being in a blind on a pond in Southeast Texas and calling em in, only to jump up, and unload on em! This reminds me of my younger days hunting with my old man. Of course, there were no houses around in my memories of hunting, but this shot helps me remember the thunderous panic of a flock back-pedaling from the surprise of two 12 gauges opening up on em!
