Snow Geese at Blackwater NWR.

I wasn’t sure what to do this morning,as the weather was a little iffy. I decided to take a chance on Blackwater, as it was a little windy here.

It was windy and cloudy at Blackwater, which isn’t ideal, but I managed a couple of shots early before it it got really cloudy.
