I love this image. I sat and waited for awhile in the cold holding my Fuji XE2 with no gloves. Even the geese looked cold as they were not flying but just lounging in the semi-frozen water. I kept saying to myself, I’ll hang out just a little bit longer as the cold wind blew in my face. After multiple times of talking myself into staying just a little longer, I finally gave in to the cold. Just as I was about to walk away, a group of geese took off from the water, but stayed very close to it. They didn’t fly high or leave the lake, they just flew a few feet above the water and circled it. I couldn’t help but feel like it was all just for me. They felt my disappointment in not making a good image of them, so decided to help me out.
At least, that is what I want to believe.
