Sometimes a video is needed to share the experience, something I have commented on before. To make the still shot work I think a sense of order must be distilled out of the organized chaos of 600,000 or more birds in flight.

I just returned from Loess Bluffs NWR at Mound City, MO. and was surprised to learn yesterday's count was about 750,000 geese. However, the biggest surprise was quality of images shot at an ISO of 16,000, almost literally shots in the dark. I moved back to Canon after an experiment with Sony and this was its shakedown visit. Both shots recorded using auto focus.
|ISO 16,000, 1/8 sec @ f5.6|
|ISO 16,000, 1/60 sec @ f4.0|

Everyone loves peanut butter! I'm sure pine martens prefer a hot lunch but will settle for this when MacDonald's is closed. This was the highlight of my second trip this year to Sax Zim Bog. The red pail handle is an indication of the chaotic feed placement at this location.

You can't win with squirrels at the feeder so why not just enjoy them? This activity was recorded over several days so I could capture the decisive moment with the squirrel jumping onto the feeder. It was easy recording it jumping off, all I had to do was open the door.
