[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Greylag Goose (also spelled Graylag in the United States), 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.

The Greylag Goose is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies.

Within science, the greylag goose is most notable as being the bird with which the ethologist Konrad Lorenz first did his major studying into the behavioural phenomenon of imprinting.

Hello Zahoor,
Beautiful photo of these geese. Very nice natural colours, good sharpness and composition with the geese all looking in one side. Excellent DOF with a very good OOF BG.
Have a good weekend,
Peter

Hello Zahoor,
