Great capture. How close were you? Did they attack? Thanks for posting.
Thanks Mia. No, these didn't attack, but I was mugged another time in broad daylight in a city park by a flock of Canada geese. They took my popcorn.
The shot was taken at 300mm focal length. I didn't want to get too close and disturb them.
Nice get! I had some geese around here for a while and tried a few times to get a shot like that, but I was always a little late to dinner.
Thanks Dmitri. "Late to dinner" is apropos, because that's where they were headed, to a little meadow beside a stream to dine on some grass.
Awesome shot! I like everything about it!
Good job! :thumbup:
Thanks Bifurcator. I appreciate the compliment. I post the odd photo here because this site has the toughest and most knowledgeble critics. I guess I got it right this time.
I shot at ISO 800, so there's a bit of noise, but it doesn't seem intrusive, or maybe it adds to the texture of the photo. I only notice it when I pixel peep.
This is fabulous, great colours, its captured the protective attitude of the parents and the vunrebility of the youngsters superbly. !!
You're right, the parents were hyper-vigilant. The camera was making them nervous, so I took a couple of shots at maximum range and moved on.
