These are a few of my images of the snow geese that visit us each year on their way to and from their breeding grounds on Wrangell Island in the arctic. The above image shows them flying low over the intertidal zone just west of Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, a few miles south of Vancouver, BC. In the background are the silhouettes of the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island behind them. Georgia Strait, which is part of the Salish Sea, lies between the geese and the islands. This is the image I submitted to Leanne Cole’s and Laura Macky’s Monochrome Madness Challenge for this week. You can see everyone’s MMC images on Leanne’s blog, click here to visit.
Some of the geese overwinter along the Washington and southernmost BC coastline.
