Just want to show that this time of the year, you can see Geese (not just Canada) doing the twisted-body, zig-zag flight motions as the geese prepare to land. I might as well include Canada Geese related "birdscape" in the photos below. Enjoy!

One big set today just to get rid of them. There will always be plenty of opportunities to shoot some Mallards in Flight throughout the year anyway.
The lead shot along with the photos in the first comment box are all pan blurs at slow shutterspeed.
I've also included shots using fast shutterspeed for those who prefer sharp images.

December 24, 2010
Over the Christmas break, I spent majority of time on bird photography. There wasn't much activity at Gold Bar that day other than ducks quacking at the river and a Merlin flying overhead (I wasn't quick enough to capture that).
However, the raptor activities picked up on New Years Eve, which I will post soon!
