We have a lift off, may be?

A terrific capture of the action Yves. Spring always brings out the best in these geese, they're so fired up and fun to photograph. Lovely composition, tones and detail in this shot. I hope to be able to get back out with my camera again soon too.

Thank you Heather. Agree, there is a lot of action actualy at the marsh. Yesterday I caught two pairs of geese that where angry and arguing out loud to tel the other pair that both nests where too close for comfort.

Thank you so much Debra. The original shot was a quick one and larger. Croping the right zone of it gave someting quite funy indeed. Complete with a little story- Et Voila!

Super fun action shot Yves, the story and picture bring on the smiles. I like the depth created by the foreground, middle and background. Nicely captured.

When the goose started running on water I aimed to capture the lift off. But it kept running and running and running. Never got into a normal flight. Instead, It made that surprising long long trail. It just wanted to join a group of friends a little farther on the right.
