I’m so happy when I pick the right week to go to Ephrata ,and see the Snow Geese at Middle Creek. It can cause a traffic jam on that little country road. This is only a small fraction of the flock. I wanted some of the photographers in the shot so you can see how close you can get to them, and give some scale to the scene. When they take off it’s amazing. Think of a noisy white cloud floating back and forth across the lake. You could stand around for hours waiting for the perfect picture.But these birds are eating something, they could stay on the ground for a long time. Middle Creek is my favorite place in PA to draw and hike.
