Motion Blur Photography #3: Flock of Geese

You have noticed by now that there are two connected ponds on the Old Walnut Canyon Road (the road that leads to Walnut Canyon National Monument) that attract a variety of waterfowl as well as ospreys, bald eagles, and swallows. Once again I turn to my cache of photos taken there for another favorite— the third in my series of motion blur photographs. (Please note that I am no expert, just one who is enjoying what I have learned of the technique.) Canada Geese are far more common on the ponds than the very transient American Avocets. The three in this photo exemplify behavioral synchrony, a defining feature of flocking. (And yes, these really are three geese, not one with three heads.)
