Really like the gull, and the first one is funny. Are Canadian Geese always that awkward looking?

Love the action in the Canada Goose shot, and the peaceful mood of the Gull shot. Thanks so much for sharing these!

Nice shots Daniel, the detail in the gull is outstanding. I am impressed with your Manual Focusing skill.

Daniel,

What did you say that got that goose so angry? Kidding aside, I like the fact that you captured the attitude and action of the goose. Nice sea-gull as well.

Lou, Rodney, Ronny

Thanks for the positive comment. We are heading into summer now and there is more birding opportunity for this old man who has been shooting models indoor during the harsh wintry months
