Goose Moon

I would like to say that today’s image was made possible from careful planning and thoughtful execution.  That I studied the migratory paths of North American geese, cross-referenced with this month’s Lunar phases, and examined meteorological reports to calculate the precise time and location.  But the truth is that I simply got lucky.  I was taking a bunch of pictures yesterday morning with camera on tripod and my shutter remote, snapping images when I noticed one of them had a dark streak across it.  I mildly panicked, thinking something smudged the lens!

Taken at 1/500th of a second, and it captures the bird details pretty well, I think.  The Moon isn’t too bad either.
