Greater White-fronted Goose
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia|
Greater White-fronted Geese are 64–81 cm (25–32 in) in length, have a 130–165 cm (51–65 in) wingspan and weigh 1.93–3.31 kg (4.3–7.3 lb).They have bright orange legs and mouse-coloured upper wing-coverts. They are smaller than Greylag Geese. As well as being larger than the Lesser White-fronted Goose, the Greater White-fronted Goose lacks the yellow eye-ring of that species, and the white facial blaze does not extend upwards so far as in Lesser.
The male is typical larger in size, both sexes are similar in appearance – greyish brown birds with light grey breasts dappled with dark brown to black blotches and bars. Both males and females also have a pinkish bill and orange legs and feet.

Interesting species and great photo Razvan! Very good low POV, excellent composition, wonderful colours and good sharpness.
Interesanta captura ta cu detalii bune si culori naturale. Fain surprinsa de la mica distanta. Iarna asta a cam dat de furca pasarilor. A poposit rata mare in centrul Timisorii langa bazinele cu apa pentru porumbei.....Iar acum o saptamana am vazut o barza rotindu-se in parcul central din Timisoara.....Incredibil ce comportament deviat au ajuns sa aiba pasarile.....
