Greylag Geese (Anser anser)

These shots of some fine-looking greylags coming in to roost were taken at close to dusk, hence the orange glow to their chests. They're such vocal birds in flight that the sound of them filled the sky as they came in low overhead as a pair. In the first shot, the second bird is the one doing the talking…

  1. Absolutely beautiful shots! Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind comments.In answer to your question: I really like the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. I've had a lot of fun with it. All my macro shots are handheld. It's a good performer. You won't be sorry if you purchase it.

  2. Thanks for the advice – Tim

  3. I really like the formation in the 2nd shot. Excellent work Tim.

    Sounds like you could be spending some hard earned cash!
