[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot from a long ways off. He was resting on the side of a creek. This is usually where they have babies, but I haven't seen any this Spring.

At least 11 subspecies of Canada Goose have been recognized and as of 2004 some of the smaller subspecies were designated their own species—the Cackling Goose.
Researchers have identified about 13 different calls from Canada Geese. These vary including loud greeting/alarm calls and soft sounds from feeding geese.
While their eggs are incubating females lose their flight feathers, so they cannot fly until after their eggs hatch.
A group of geese has many collective nouns, including a "gaggle", "blizzard", "chevron", "knot", "plump", and "string" of geese.

Hello Trevor

Nice shot from very far, fine POV and framing
among the vegetation, with a beautiful light, TFS4


Hallo Trevor
I like this image for the fact that it is taken with no pretence and just as it should be in nature. I like the beautiful bright gras which acts as backdrop as well as a natural frame. The contrast of black, white and green is really lovely and attracts the eye. A lovely image with no snags. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
