Taking flight

Restless

As the days grow shorter and chillier, migratory species begin to exhibit Zugunruhe, an anxious restlessness that compels them to take flight. The phenomenon will return next year as the days grow longer and warmer.

Photo taken as the restless geese passed the lighthouse at Wind Point, north of Racine, Wisconsin, a symbol of all that is unchangeable and unmoveable.

I was wrapping up shooting at the lighthouse when I heard the geese honking, then saw that their flight path would take them near the tower. I only had time for one shot.
