That's My World Tuesday: Action Shots

Children chasing ducks.
Ducks and geese chasing runner.
Hi there, I'm looking for some action.
Three geese flying low.
Two of the three get ready to land.
Those two come in for a smooth landing.
Look at me, look at me . . .

These shots were taken at Shelley Lake in Raleigh, NC, US. To visit other parts of the world, please go to the home site of that's my world Tuesday.

I love them all!! How beautiful and what fun shots, Carver! Love the ones in flight and landing! They're such fun to watch! I've been doing that down at the harbor, but haven't been able to get any in flight! These are superb! And I LOVE your new header shot! Spring is here!!! Have a wonderful week!

I've found that kids chasing ducks means I don't have to chase the kids and may get a much need rest while they ware themselves out LOL
