Yesterday was AWESOME! I got to witness a male goose defend his property and lady with great vengeance, it was beautiful.

    Nice action shot Heather; I recognize the area at Mud Lake; you should see herons (blue herons and black crowned night herons) there in mid summer.

  • Thanks so much Dan! I never would have experienced the magic of Mud Lake if you hadn’t told me of it’s beauty! Thank you. Can’t WAIT to see the herons there in mid summer:)

    Quite the antics these guy perform…You caught him well.

  • Indeed they do Ted! The last 2 years I visited/photographed ducks/geese, but never in March/mating season…I laugh myself outloud to the point of tears! Best entertainment ever:)
