Snow Geese

This image was taken very early in the morning under very low light condition so I decided to experiment with
the use of "flash" light. My photography is almost always under "natural" light, however, in this particular case,
I was already using an ISO of 1600 and still was not able to get fast enough shutter speed to get the image, so
I decide to use flash light (Canon 580 EX with extension). The result was rather "interesting" with overall good results
except for the reflected light in the eyes of the birds which makes them look like......hum?......alliens?, Robots?, well, you'll be the judge. It is kind of cool though.....he, he.

Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II ,Canon 600 mm + 2X extender
Flash: Canon 580 EX with extension full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto

You mesmerized them Cesar with your charm !!!! Glad I did not go with you. At that hour it must have been colder than White Sands!! ? Great pic as are all the others. You got your money's worth including the free airfaire out of this trip.

That is a fascinating effect. Each looks made of some alien material.
