Walking On Water

By CanonAndy22
Good Evening Everyone,
Firstly I must thank you all for the tremendous response to my last post (heron coming in to land), I was overwhelmed by the number of awards and positive comments it received (PMs sent for all awards). Your support is hugely appreciated.

Tonight's post is the reason for getting the shot in my last post. It's one of the belligerent Canada geese that was nesting on the pond (I think this one's the male). It kept chasing the heron away when it got close to the nest. In fact they it saw off most birds from the pond. They did however meet their match late in the afternoon when an otter made a distant appearance and went through. their nest. Not sure if it got anything out of the nest or was just checking it out for a night time raid.

I hope you like this submission. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Andy
