Wildlife: en route to the north


I’ve made two spring trips to the Quebec City region and both times had opportunities to photograph thousands of snow geese, who regularly stopped along the shores of the St. Lawrence River east of the city to feed before continuing their migration north. This trip was likely in the late 1980s, when I was still using my long-retired Nikon FM2 film camera and negative film.
This was the scan I came up with. It’s not perfect, but I really like the grey-blue cast and how the afternoon sun made the white bodies stand out.

  1. Great snow geese photo, Frank. Usually when I have observed snow geese, they are floating on the water’s surface, but this is a unique photo because they are actively feeding, even a few are digging their bills into the mud.
