[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took a walk in the park near where I work on my break and wanted to take some photos of the mountains and trees when this parade of ducks and geese came running over trying to see if I had any food for them. The locals keep them all quite well fed, I've seen many people bring them bread to eat.

I was very intimidated at first and kept backing away, then I stood my ground because they just kept on coming, they finally decided I didn't have a thing for them and went back to the water. Some of the geese are over 3 feet tall and made me a bit nervous!

This has a strange, story-book quality to it which I like. The colors could be a bit bolder, but it is very eye-catching even so.

Hello Lori!
Very crowded place;).I liked POV,framing,DOF and
composition a lot.TFS..:-)

Hi Lori,
Cute shot! Reminds me of how the lagoon near where I live used to be, but unfortunately many people considered them to be their dinner, so there are hardly any ducks/geese left. I like the POV with all those ducks and geese coming towards you. Well captured!

Hi Lori,

Nice one, your notes are very good in explaining the situation. Well done.
