I just liked this scene of the mother nesting in all that coziness.
Canada geese around here have either had their chicks or should be expecting them each day now.

Thanks for visiting.

This is a lovely shot, Doug.
I love the way she has her feathers fluffed out, obviously protecting the nest.
The dappled light gives the whole scene a wondeful ambience.
This is nature at its beautiful, caring best!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bellissimo ritratto di oca candese sul nido, molto bella la composizione in questo ambiente che trasmette serenità e rende dolce "l'attesa", ottima nitidezza, splendidi i colori e bellissimi giochi di luce. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Well done, Doug.
Good light and low POV.

Hi Doug,
This is a very nice capture! I never managed to get that close from this bird. Lighting, low POV, details, exposure and composition are beautiful! Well done!
