First of all I would like to say a massive thank you to canonfan and sparrowhawk for their user awards for my last upload. So very kind of you.

Here's a photo of some geese flying away. I thought they were very obliging - the shots I've got of them sitting on the water weren't very interesting, so it was nice that they decided to jazz things up a bit and stretch their wings!

Top shot of the geese.
The white frame hems them in a bit for me but I know nothing.

A dynamic diagonal, Alex, and the wings give an excellent shape. Perfect timing.
