As promised yesterday, here comes the Canada Goose, gooses, geese, geeses, or whatever is the plural of a Canada Goose. In any case, they were incredibly active and gave me multiple opportunities to get some pretty amazing shots. Often they will just kind of swim around the pond, dunk their head, and shake a little. Today they were diving under water up to about 7 or 8 seconds, rolling over on their back with their webbed feet just flailing around, and then a lot of standing up and flapping their wings.
The Nikon D7200 did a great job in the rainy, gloomy, low light, to the point of even freezing the water droplets in mid air during their flapping. Paired up with our Nikkor 200-500 mm lens, the only factor becomes the one behind the viewfinder.
What barely got started as a gloomy weekend forecast, turned out to be a pretty amazing photo shoot. The five tom turkeys making their grand appearance, and then the ballet of the Canada Goose doing their water dancing. All in all, not a bad Saturday morning for photography.
I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I did taking them, and if so, please don’t forget to press the “Like” button below. Leave me a comment or two as well, I love getting to hear from you all: from the critiques to the “atta boys” I enjoy them both.
From my camera to yours, “Enjoy Our Wonderful World!”
