Not long ago, I took a short trip with the idea of finding some birds to photograph. Raptor photos (live ones that fly loose and live in the outdoors) was the high hope. We saw 4 of them hunting, it was a windy day and they were cruising low in the fields at such a distance that I couldn't make an identification. Up jumped all these geese out of a cut corn field and I got the only passing shot of the day. Photographing an alley seems much easier than nature but I'm going to keep at it this spring.
