March 13

Goosed

A few seconds after taking this photo I tried to get closer and lower. The goose on the right charged then at me head down.
I yelled out in surprise which caused us both to back off. Exciting way to start the way.

Excellent capture and mood. They have chased me before too. I thought it was kind of cute. V

They can be aggressive at times especially near breeding season.

That must have given you quite a thrill Walter! A beautiful misty image. v

They give a wicked nip. I'm glad it didn't happen to you

A nice foggy morning capture and a lively story.

I had to smile at your story, Walter! Geese are so unpredictable! I would have expected the goose to fly off. This is a lovely scene.

A very nice picture Walter, too bad they were agressive. Here in the beginning of April, just in the front of my place, the geese will be here on the river shore. They will be hundred of them! V

It seems like Canada Geese are everywhere now days! A wonderful, moody image. V

Lovely geese in the mist, but they have been weaponized in recent times, so beware! V

a lively encounter then...Canada Geese are often fierce, and rightly insist on their space and freedom from threat...still your early capture caught a telling view, moment, and encounter..

LOL! They can be very aggressive.. Nice capture, Walter..
