[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, today it is fathers day,
why not a photo with a daddy bird
or wild animal, on this photo it is
the bird in the background.

1/500s, f/3.5, ISO100,
6.86mm (35mm eq:38mm).

- Canada Goose
- Bernache du Canada
- Branta canadensis

from Hinterland Who's Who website

« Spring is a very energetically demanding
time in a goose’s life, especially for
breeding females. Canada Geese feed
intensively during the few weeks before
they leave southern agricultural areas
to prepare for a period with little food
when they first arrive on the northern
breeding grounds.

They will need sufficient reserves of
fat and protein to complete migration,
produce a clutch of eggs, and survive
for about one month of incubation. »

Hello Asbed,
Nice photo of these Canada Geese. The eye contact with daddy is very special. Not easy to make an acceptable photo in these light conditions. But it creates a fine atmosphere. Excellent choice of composition.

hahaha, a nice one, Asbed.. and a very suitable one too :)
i loved the composition and effect of light here.. so soothing.

Hello Asbed,

Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

Hello Asbed,
Looks as if they have there hands full so to speak. Great capture with nice low point of view.

Hallo Asbed
Once againg a lovely image from your acquaintance duck family. Lovely formation of the proud dad and his nestlings. I like these "family" type of pictures as the most of the time they are captured with no pretence and just like it should be in nature. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

really nicely taken image of bird and its chicks. excellent angle and lighting. tfs.

You know what I like about this: is that you left some sky above the trees in the background. Sky frames it well instead of just the trees. It's adorable to see the chicks follow their father. It's a nice group shot Asbed. Excellent presentation of family life. TFS Trevor

Beautiful scene and beautiful photo Asbed! Very good composition and nice lighting. Very good sharpness too!
