It’s that time of year. Actually, just over a month ago, when this photo was taken, it was already that time of year – by now we’ve moved on to the part where there’s snow all over the place. (I know – I drove through a blizzard last week.)
Of all the signs of a fading autumn and impending winter, I think there none as iconic as the V formations of geese and ducks flying south. Usually you hear them just before you can see them, a honking signal between airborne members that may help them maintain their positions. In this case, I was able to grab a shot just as they came over Minsi Lake at sunrise.
They didn’t land, which may be just as well – there were at least two duck hunters hidden among the reeds down one branch of the lake.
