Each spring, during the month of April, I spend a few days in the helicopter flying surveys for nesting geese.  Of course, I can’t resist the urge to shoot a few pictures out the window of our beautiful state.  This is the second installment of pictures from this spring.

After a very harsh winter, much of the countryside was pretty beat up by livestock.  There was a great deal of feeding taking place in this region.  These patterns are created by roll bales being scattered to feed cattle.   Nikon D4 with AFS Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 G.
