[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A very pleasant trip was concluded by these wonderful barnacle geese. The restaurant wasn't open yet so a short drive on Faro to kill time provided this (and 15 other) families of barnacle geese, my favorite western european goose,

it was a bit later in the afternoon so the light was almost manageable. The cropping wasn't too careful, since I was standing there with the big zoom hurrying to get out again, not to disturb them,

enjoy your evening

Hello Jeroen,
The late afternoon light was ideal for this fine capture of a Barnacle Goose family and the Baltic BG is great. Nice sharpness and compositin too.
I hope you had a good meal afterwards!
Thanks and best regards,

Hallo Jeroen,

alweer een mooie foto en deze keer van Brandganzen denk ik.
Alleen jammer dat de weerspiegeling afgesneden is mar soms moet je wat om beeldvullend te krijgen.


Hello Jeroen,
Nice capture with lovely natural colours and excellent details.
Great composition, Background and exceptional POV.

Jereon, nice shot of the geese. We don't see these in my part on the world. Well done. Thanks for commenting on my Green Heron. I appreciate your input. There was very little cropping and very little noise reduction done on my Green Heron photo. Have a great week, Bill

Hi MF J.

After a long trip including the Middle East i could find a pretext to visit TN now! This one is a fantastic capture of a happy looking goose family against to blurry blue water BG with lovely wing position from excellent POV!
TFS and have a nice day!
