Geese in mist

BLACK AND WHITE – Runner-up

I was photographing waterfowl at a local wetland in heavy mist. I could hear plenty of birds but seeing them was another matter. I heard these geese moving closer well before I saw them. I liked how the mist gave the image texture and how each bird was rendered in slightly less detail.
