One way or another, I'm gonna getcha by 


A speeding attack Greylag Goose, University of York Campus.
His head is slightly out of focus, he was moving VERY quickly towards us, no more than 5 feet away in this shot.

I try to make the perfect image, knowing that I can’t and won’t. If I ever did achieve perfection, what would I have to strive for…..?

thus has Creation put the base;

  • We escaped!. They are fiercely defensive in spring (or what passes for it LOL) even if they don’t have nests.
    Thanks, Renee

    Does this pose the question – who can run the fastest ……Jesika or a Greylag Goose? – great shot and capture Jesika – M x

  • My asthmatic airways don’t allow running – but I can walk at warp speed when threatened! I’ve only been bitten once, on my shoe, but they can be quite intimidating when they gang up.
    Thanks, Mattie, x
