Anser albifrons

Breeding across the tundra from Nunavut to Siberia, across Russia, and in Greenland, the Greater White-fronted Goose has one of the largest ranges of any species of goose in the world. In North America, however, it is common only west of the Mississippi River, where it is found in large flocks in wetlands and croplands.

As is true of many geese, Greater White-fronted Goose pairs stay together for years and migrate together, along with their offspring. White-front family bonds can last longer than in most geese, and some young stay with their parents through the next breeding season. Parent and sibling associations may continue throughout their lives.

Hello Manyee,

Wonderful photo from you!


Hello Mr.Manyee,
Really beautiful picture.Good colour depth with attractive sharpness.Blue water is another attractive key here.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice time,

Hello Manyee,
The first thing that caught my attention was the vivid colors and clarity displayed in this image. The detail obtained is incredible, every marking in their plumages is easily observed. Even though they are a little distance away the catchlight in their eyes is readily visible. I love the bright blue water as well as their reflection in it. A wonderful photo of these beautiful geese!!
Hope you don't mind, but I did a WS to try and eliminate a few dust specks which showed up in the water.
