Canada Goose

By Glostopcat  
One of the resident canada geese at Woorgreens Lake in the Forest of Dean, taken on Tuesday on a day out with fellow epzers' AdeOsman and gary_d. This fella and some of his gang harassed Gary at lunchtime when he was attempting to take some landscapes, no doubt they thought he had brought them some food. Either that or his Lynx Africa deodorant spray which he uses had made him appear irresistible, as the advertisers are fond of telling us Lynx is a guaranteed bird puller!Wink lol Because Ade left just after lunch he missed the lady of the lake going for an afternoon swim, the hot weather had encouraged a leggy blonde to strip off, don her bikini and go for a swim to cool off! I don't have any pictures of her for you to view Mikbee and Lifesnapper so you will have to make do with this elegant long necked bird instead!Grin In all seriousness you would have been gravely disappointed had I taken a photograph and uploaded it, as Gary would testify she was no stunning swimwear model a la Kate Upton! This is the Forest of Dean after all and not Florida!Smile

What Ed didn't tell you was that it was one of the Forest's wild boar that had taken a swim. quite a sight in swimwear I'd imagine, I heard Gary got very excited! Wink

An image which ticks so many photographic boxes, and so many more. A real top quality photograph. Further more a rather cheery pre-narrative.

Best Ade did'nt see the blond Ed, the way he was knackered after half a day out with us youngsters we would have had to carry him back, and that's not something either of us would have found enjoyable, perish the thought, a great shot here Ed under very harsh lighting conditions.

A fine shot Ed.
And I will be the judge on the merits of bikini clad blondes,
no matter what shape form or size they are,so in future please upload

They are rather handsome birds - there's just too many of them.

Ha haaaaaaaa love the write up Ed Smile and I'm so glad you've called this Bird by it's proper name, unlike some who call them 'Canadian Geese', it really winds me up, but not half as much as missing a young Lady getting into a Bikini and going in for a Swim, even if She's not quite top Totty Ed Wink
