[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red-breasted Goose breeds in Arctic Siberia, mainly on the Taymyr Peninsula, with smaller populations in the Gydan and Yamal peninsulas. Most winter along the northwestern shores of the Black Sea in Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine (occasionally moving further southwest to Greece), but some winter in Azerbaijan. It is a rare vagrant to Great Britain and other western European areas, where it is sometimes found with flocks of Brent or Barnacle Geese.However, since it is common in captive wildfowl collections, escapees outside its usual range are fairly frequent. In the late Pleistocene the species' range expanded southward to Bulgaria.
The Red-breasted Goose often nests close to nests of birds of prey, such as Snowy Owls and Peregrine Falcons, which helps to protect this small goose from mammalian predators such as the Arctic Fox.While wintering, the Red-breasted Goose feeds on grasses, leaves and seeds.

Hello Mehmet,
Very beautifully colored this goose. I also like the way it walks and has an eye on the photographer. Well done.

What this sharp portrait of Branta ruficollis, feathers shine with all the magnificence of its velvety sheen. Also note about it is very interesting. Especially regarding how nests; near predatory birds that protect from vermin ...
Congratulations on your image and text. Full work.
A big hug Mehmet
and throughout Turkey since
