[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When the dominating male saw me, it immediately raise-up to show that he was the boss of the flock.

Well known for their V-shaped migrating, sonorous honking, Canada Geese are among the most familiar of North America's waterfowl. The "Giant Canada Goose" nests in the Yukon and winters mainly in California. The most abundant race is the one that nests south of Hudson Bay, which numbers well over a million. Like other geese, these birds are chiefly grazers, feeding on stubble fields and eating marsh vegetation. Increasingly tolerant of humans, some even nest in city parks and suburbs. They are especially noticeable in late summer and early fall, when they form molting flocks on golf courses and large lawns.

Bonjour Donald
Cette photo de saison est très réussie a cause de la pose du "boss" et des autres bernaches qui semblent connaître le mot d'ordre !

Bonjour Donald,
Magnifique votre composition, image très bien équillibrée, lumière et couleurs splendides.

À bientôt !

Hi Lapointe. This is a very beautful picture. The dull tones really set off the white and the black of the geese. The clairy and composition are just great! Well taken.

Très belle photo de ces bernaches Donald. C'est intéressant de voir l'attitude du "boss" avec ses ailes déployées! Les couleurs et la composition sont excellentes. À quel endroit avez-vous pris cette photo?

bonjour Donald
