Longing for the other side

One bird deserves another. This shot of mine dates back to January 2008. On a short bicycle trip we encountered a flock of geese, and fortunately I had a camera at hand. The trick here is to shoot from a really low angle. Birds, and inparticular water fowl, occur frequently in my photo stream, but this is one of my own favourites.
