Brants have a fast flight, and the Brant is pulling away from the Canada Geese--even though they took off at the same time.
You can imagine the long slender wings on a stocky bird especially compared to the Canada Geese to its left.
Also seen is a Brants wingstroke which is downward and does not get above its back.
