Touchdown

This shot was partly good luck and partly dogged patience. I was following a group of Canada geese as they trudged alongside the canal. Every so often, one of them would jump into the water but it was usually one I didn't have the camera on. I finally got lucky with this guy. First, he sort of signalled that he was about to launch hiimself, so I got the camera focussed on him. Then he actually flew into the water, instead of bellyflopping like most of the others were doing.

 

What came next...
