Went for a walk today (pretty crisp at -15), and almost missed these guys! They blended in quite well.

Excellent shots, great job dealing with the overall white. How did you talk the Mallard to drop by for comparison?

Nice catch, Leon. I'd say it's time they got out of Dodge!

I wondered, but didn't dare say anything! I knew they didn't look like the Snow Geese we have come through here.

No matter what they are, they are beautiful! Well done.

Ooops! Thanks for the correction! When I initially spotted them, I thought geese (and was corrected by my wife), not sure why I even titled the thread geese!! LOL

Thanks for the comments everyone.
