Greylag goose (Wikipedia )

I had a long hike through the frozen polders and parklands from Breukelen, yesterday. Goodness, it was sooo cold and grumpy clouded.
Some of the shots I made make up for the exercise, though.

There were actually hundreds and hundreds of geese in the area – I only succeeded in a few reasonable shots though – the one moment they were peacefully grazing, the next they were alarmed and flew up in large numbers, while the sky filled with they loud babbling.
And they always made sure to keep a safe distance from me and my camera LOL . These two were quietly walking on, as they saw me come… into the white wide world… :)
(I was not the only one walking around with camera or binoculars there… birdwatchers all over the place :D )

Technical details
Photo made with Pentax K10D camera and Tamron AF70-300mm Tele-macro1:2 lens , 1/250 sec – f unknown, 300mm – ISO 400
