    Birds of Bornholm: Greylag Goose

    This is my last post from the island of Bornholm, Denmark. The Greylag Goose has both resident and migratory populations in Europe. I *think* these are migratory birds on Bornholm (in summer), based on what I have read, but not 100% sure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greylag_Goose They looked pretty neat either way...

    All shots taken with 60D, 100-400L, Acratech BH, and Manfrotto pod.

    Very nice. 2 & 3 are my favorites - you were able to capture some distinguishable feathers, and thats always nice.

    Well that's just Ducky, Sean!

    I like the first image even with the larger, dark green blade of grass.

    The second image may benefit by having two less geese; the upper right and lower left as these are distracting. Leaving the one goose in the upper left makes me think the main goose is showing off to him/her.

    The third shot is nice, but would have been better if there were some separation between the two birds. I know, easier to say than do. The shot is clear and you were lucky they decided to fly past for the photo op.

    I don't know where to look in the fourth image. Too many geese and none particularly stand out, which would have been more interesting.

    Really great feedback--thanks. I was struggling with some of the same thoughts! I thought they exposure worked out, but wasn't happy with the comp...

    Pretty normal birds for a lot of Europeans, but cool for me to see.

    Thanks to everyone for the comments.
