This Greylag Goose was sounding off at some children nearby. I was surprised at how serated their tongues were and took the opportunity to take this portrait of him. There were a whole group of these beautiful geese but he seamed to be the only one annoyed by having children around. I hope you like him.
Many thanks for all the C&C's and votes on my uploads, they are all very much appreciated.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Steve.
