Canada Goose-Branta canadensis

As we went for a walk along an inlet of the Baltic this morning, this beautiful pair of Canada Geese were totally absorbed by each other and ignored our presence as we approached. Spring is definitely on the way here now after a spell of unusually warm and sunny weather.

It is the largest Goose that breeds in Sweden where it was introduced in the 1930’s. When it occurs in large numbers it is rather impopular but who can deny its beauty?

Hopefully I will soon have more contributions to add to TN as life returns after the long winter.

This was captured from a distance of 6 metres with the camera handheld. It has been cropped slightly and sharpened.

Hi Ulla.
This charming gooses were so kind to give you an opportunity to take so wonderful picture. Poses of both of them as well as POV and framing are excellent. You managed to reflect the state of Nature at the end of the winter season perfectly. Colours and sunlight are very natural. Clarity of the image and details are also superb. My compliments and TFS.
P.S. We had first warm day yesterday and life seems a bit better :).
