Hello Thorsten,
These geese are not rare. They spread over a large part of Europe.
Beautiful photo from a good low POV. Nice natural colours and blurred BG. Excellent sharp details and a pleasant pose. Good DOF and composition.
Happy Easter,

Hi Thorsten.
What an amazing scene. The bird stands in deep meditation. What about does it meditate on? I like DOF and tender passage from crisp sharp FG and main character to BG. Lights and colours are also very attractive. My compliments and TFS.

Hello Thorsten
wonderful capture of this egyptian goose taken with sharp details and good lighting and colors
I like the composition of this shot with green grass in the foreground and "golden" water in the back ground
very well done

A lot of DETAILS.
Educative notes.
Love the colour contrasts.
Mario, your friend from Canada.
Try & register a cat while you are in Florida; I mean a mountain lion. Good luck....>>>>

Hello Thorsten,
A fine sharp capture of an Egyptian Goose, a species that has begun to establish itself in parts of Europe, as result of escapes of captive birds from parks and gardens. 'Wild' ones are seen in Sweden too.
I like the POV and the lighting as well as the composition.
I hope you had a successful trip to Florida!
Best regards,

Hello Thorsten !
I have seen this bird only once in the wild, in Germany, not far away from Rastatt - they are truly gogeous birds. I think I will never forget this meeting. Coming to your picture, I must tell you how much I admire it - the pose of the goose, the warm light, the splendid composition... A true pleasure to look at. Very well done !
