She chose a beautiful setting which you captured so well here. Very nice tones, crisp detail and backlighting too. An excellent shot Yves and I'll look forward to seeing more photos if she does decide to stay.

Thanks for the nice coments Heather. Agree with you about the beautyful site and the nice job she did on the nest. I haven't got a chance to go there since. Hope she is fine.

Hi Yves, terrific shot. I really like the surroundings. I wonder if there was more water there when she nested with the spring melt.

Thanks Debra. I was quite excited to photograph the lady and the fluffy nest. I made a point not to bother the goose too much, It might be her first nesting. She is not far from the water that is just 6 feet on the right. Knowing the place I figure out that geese are discovering that section of the river wich is narrow and covered by trees (not a place to fly for that big bird) Time will tell. .

Nice capture of this one in the natural camouflage. You may just have an excellent opportunity to record her activities.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Clifford. Stay tuned.

I may have the opportunity to follow up the nesting of that goose. It sit on the bank of the Massawipi river very close to my regular trail. I think she made a bad choice there. She was blending so well in the surrounding that she had to raise straight up in front of me to avoid beeing hit. I doubt she will stay there, but if so it will be realy easy to photograph the nesting activity
