I was standing high on a bank and saw then coming from a distance. This made it easier to get focus and position to photograph them downward and at eye level.
Most images here are made to be viewed or printed in landscape and are best viewed enlarged.
As they flew by I could actually see them glancing towards me on the shore. We were pretty close here. I did have on a long lens, however to get the composition I pulled back several times during shooting.
When they all landed down in the cove I was surprised at how loud the sound of splashing water was. In hind site I should have captured the landing even though it was not close.
