[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Some times a picture comes along that just makes me laugh as I try and put my own spin on what might be going on in the minds of the characters in the shot. In this case, I see the Canada Goose in the back is telling the other one to get moving, fly higher, turn right or just get out of the way.

Nothing special about the wildlife in the picture except that they can be fun to photograph.

I hope you enjoy the humor I see in nature.

hello Bob

excellent photography of these Canada Geese
after their take-off, shot with fine POV and framing,
beautiful warm luminosity, excellent sharpness and details,
with the water i also love to see vegetations on the image, TFS


Awesome in-flight photo! Love the neck stretched out and the one calling out (perhaps to warn of the animal paparazzi?). Excellent composition, use of panning, and action shot! Love the details, and yes, I see the humor as well!


Hello Bob! Wonderful pair. Amazing poses. Interesting scene. Good dynamic composition. Original picture. Well done!

Hi Bob,

This photo was taken at exactly the right time. Nice and detailed with some good humour thrown in.
