Roy. D. Fiance. You can quack all you want, but if you start to waddle, you are in BIG trouble.

THOMAS! Those are perfect, I think they may be VLS. Very Large Swans..or maybe the dreaded VLG...Very Large Gooses...

One Thing is for sure, they make me VHLI. Very Happy love it.

look, the one in the front has it's stocking rumpled...oh, my ever lovin lordy...

Beautiful Capture, Thomas. They are huge, and spectacular.

I do enjoy this, so much.

I'm so mad... wanted to go to the park today and see if the babies are there but the weather is all cloudy and gloomy with the chance of rain!!! Waaaaah.

I'll just have to drag blurry pictures out because this thread is awesome...

With all this bad weather, I'll NEVER be able to go out and learn how to use my camera =(

Hahah,

i think thread is funny, i see ducts everyday but my lens has to short of a focal length for me to get a good shot of them, even cropping doesnt help :)

i guess i can just sit back and enjoy this instead..

I'm really happy and really sad at the same time.

Happy because I saw baby ducks!!! Sad because most of what I got is too blurry - I need to start bringing a tripod with me - the telephoto lens NEEDS it =(

oh, nnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I am laughing so hard...I knew you would come thru...lol...had not one ounce of an idea you had saved something special for the last photo...and just where else would this go? Under "natural landscapes"?
I love the goslings, am glad you didn't get tooooo close...they can be quite protective..
good one(s) Roy!!

Glad you like them patti, forgot to mention that all three pictures were shot in Windsor Great Park a very large chunk of South East Berkshire and all of it owned by "Betty Windsor" HRH, I did try to get a little closer to the geese but they were off when I got too close so had to shoot at 200mm

Went back yesterday with a tripod, but all the babies were in hiding. Got a few good shots of the parents though. I still have to resize em.

I got some advise from someone I ran into about places to go to see more wildlife and more variety in birds (including wood ducks!!!!). I'll be traveling around my area a lot over the weekends =D


This thread is just so cute. I'm loving the baby geese!!! Patti - you're putting everyone on a mission. This is fun =)
