Photo: Snow Geese Take to the Misty Sky

One might think that an outing to photograph wildlife would require sunlight – photographer Sam McMillan proves otherwise! He writes of this wonderfully moody photo of snow geese (Chen caerulescens) in the fog:

On this visit to Merced National Wildlife Refuge, we never saw the sun. In the fog, the sound of thousands of snow geese taking off was unreal. I could hear the Sandhill Cranes but could not see them. Great foggy trip!

The moral of the story: When life gives you fog, make beautiful foggy photographs. Would you like to see your nature photo featured as the TreeHugger photo of the day? Join TreeHugger’s Reader Photo Pool on flickr and add your pictures to the group.
