    Winter is on the way.

  5. Karen Lang says:

    Beautiful capture 👏

  6. Cool photo. It’s been so warm in MN, it’s easy to forget it’s really autumn. Our geese may be confused too. I haven’t been hearing them overhead.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Ellen. I heard flocks surprisingly early last month after that brief cold spell. I often wonder where they spent the summer? Judging from the size of the flocks, it was a good one.

  7. Val Boyko says:

    Lovely! Bet they made a noise too 💛

  8. Jet Eliot says:

    How delightful to witness this abundance of geese on the move, Eliza. A wonderful photo and reminder of our autumn migrations.

  9. Beautiful – thank you

    Migration always is soul-stirring. I’m hoping that this year their flight path will come over us; sometimes it does, sometimes not.

  11. Dee Min says:

    Awesome shot!!!! So, it’s that time of year uh?! Hello Fall!!!!!

  12. Alice says:

    What a lot of 🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶 & honking.

  13. Treah Pichette says:

    I can practically hear the honks!

  14. bittster says:

    Excellent! Were they close or is it a zoom photo? I thought I heard something yesterday afternoon but couldn’t be sure and just assumed it was too early, so will have to keep a better watch now.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      We often get low flying flocks, but this one was clearly on a tight schedule, flying high. Glad I had my zoom lens on. You should be seeing them any day now. 🙂

  15. Come on down. Our White Pelicans have returned to the lake.

  17. A real sign that Fall is with us. Nice pic (Suzanne)

  18. A beauty of a picture. I can almost hear them calling.

  19. Maria says:

    For the past weeks we’ve been watching the geese in the mornings, while waiting on my daughter’s bus. It’s always nice to see. Great photo!

  20. That is a great shot, Eliza. I guess I will be seeing those guys soon.

  21. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    Beautifully captured Eliza, so lovely to see and hear them heading South 💛

  22. They are started settling in down this way, many more yet to arrive! Great photo.

  23. Debbie says:

    They’re on the move! Looks like they know the seasons are changing, too.

  24. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Wow, what a wonderful site to see

  25. Kris P says:

    Always an impressive sight. It’s a great capture too.

  26. Tina says:

    Great shot, Eliza. I love to see birds in migration form. It’s such an ancient, life-affirming act!

  27. Irene says:

    That is a whole lot of birds! Nice shot. 😊

  28. Impressive formation. We’re seeing a lot of geese on the move as well.

  29. Fabulous, so far I’ve only seen small groups together.🙂

  30. Robin says:

    This is such a great shot, Eliza. Don’t you sometimes wish you could fly with them? (I do.) 🙂

  31. Joanne says:

    Are they heading south for the winter, Eliza? It’s a beautiful sight. 🙂

  32. There they go. An amazing migration with the constant leader changes…almost like a murmuration as they shift in flight. Nice capture, Eliza!

  33. Isha says:

    You’re so blessed, Eliza! ❤️

  34. Oh yes … I think I heard some geese just the other day. Great formation and capture!

  35. Jane Lurie says:

    Oh, I love this, Eliza. Excellent capture!
