A very angry goose, letting me know to stay away. I had no idea ducks and geese were so territorial and aggressive. LOL. Stupid birds.

    You better believe it! I took some pics like this, but nowhere near quite as good yours – of swans in this very position – but my camera has not the zoom capacity so it was taken from a long distance. I have since learned that swans have attacked people for going too close and on occasions have been known to break a bone in a body with a clip of their wings. So be careful! We need your artwork around here Scott – upping standards – mine anyways LOL
    Love Colleen2012

  • LOL – dont worry, sweetie. I am VERY careful when around predatory animals. If it was just one goose, I wouldnt have been concerned. But there were about 10 of these fellas, not to mention the 12-15 ducks who decided to join in. They were ALL screaming at me, and as the ducks advanced on me, making me back up, step by step, I decided to just get back in my car. I think there were about 6 male ducks (the ones with the red “warts” around their eyes) who basically herded me back into my car. They were not pleased with my presence. LOL
