Took this picture of the greylag today . They were quite happy to come up close today.
TheGreylag is the largest of the grey geese and the only one that breeds in England. They favour coastal grassland . They have a grey-brown plumage with pink legs and a orange-yellow bill.

joli portrait de cette oie, les couleurs sont bien retranscrites. Points d'amélioration, l'ombre de dans l'oeil et l'ouverture un peu faible.


Hello Nick,
This is a very special and unusual portrait of an interesting bird. What I like most is the exposure here and the proximity of your subject. This eye contact is great and I love this lightning and shadow. Well seen! Thanks,

bonjour nicholas
le piqué n'est pas revolutionnaire mais la profondeur n'est pas mal malgres un reglages de diaphragme qui ne s'y pretait pas forcement.
avec un reglage plus elevé f/superieur vousauriez obtenu plus de details.
