Artist's Description

I am lucky to know people who own a private island near Helsinki and I get to spend time there. The waters are full of all kinds of birds like gulls, swans, swallows, geese and many species of other waterfowl.

I shot this handsome male goose on the 21st of May on that island. It is exactly the time of the year when all the birds are nesting. This guy was guarding his wifey sitting in the nest and if I went closer he would rise his head, open his beak and hiss a lil bit.

He did a very good job as a 24-hour body guard! And yes, his wife was a beauty and looked very safe and comfortable sitting there. I bet they will have beautiful chicks.
