A Greylag Goose, Anser anser, is a bird with a wide range in the Old World. It is the type species of the genus Anser.

It was in pre-Linnean times known as the Wild Goose ("Anser ferus"). This species is the ancestor of domesticated geese in Europe and North America. Flocks of feral birds derived from domesticated birds are widespread.

Picture taken in Thingvellir (iceland). RAW format (NEF Nikon) developped in sRVB for TL.

Hi Michel
Very nice shot of the Greylag Goose. Great colors and detail. The sharpness and focus is really good too. To bad he wasint just a little more turned but I do like the way hes looking back at you. Well done.

Hi Michel,
Nice close up shot. Great clarity.
P.S. Here is a smiley face for you! I ran out of them & didn't know why until Nick & Richard helped me.
