Snow Geese at Bosque del Apache

Bosque del Apache, which is Spanish for "woods of the Apache", is in New Mexico near the small town of San Antonio, NM, 9 mi. south of Socorro, and less than an hour and a half from Albuquerque. These Snow Geese fly in formation at first light. I took this shot with a Nikon D3 and a 600mm f4 lens. I used the auto ISO setting to keep my shutter speeds high.
