Geese in flight

The sheer number of geese that fly in over Norfolk during the winter months is awe-inspiring. Usually, I hear them before I see them – the air filled with their honking – and on this occasion I was able to capture this skein of geese (are they Barnacles?) in the same quadrant of the sky as this airliner heading north, presumably over Scotland en route to the USA. Can't help but speculate on how much more arduous the geese's journey must have been.

  1. Tim, this is my sort of shot. I love the counterpoinmt between the Geese and the Jet airliner. Thanks for visiting my blog.
