Default GBH showdown

Saw this GBH flying with a fish in it's mouth. Thought it ironic that he flew right past the fishermen!! Then out of now where comes the goose chasing the GBH. At one point there were two geese and a couple of duck harassing this poor guy before he got away. Unfortunately the later shots did not turn out well at all.

It's a shame you didn't get the latter ones. Nice captures, what are you shooting with?

Thanks Mark
I took this with my Canon 7D with the 100-400mm lens @400mm with a kenko 1.5 converter. 1/1000sec f6.7 ISO 400.

Well, the second one tells the story well enough. Nice capture. It is possible that the GBH intruded on somebody's nesting territory - geese are fierce defenders of nest and young.

Actually, in this area there are at least 10 GBH nests. I don't know if there are any nests of geese or not. It's quite nice seeing so many GBH's in the same spot. They are still hard to get good shots of though
