I'm always trying to sneak up on these pesky Brandt Geese. They're hard to shoot, blowing the highlights or blowing the black - So in my latest attempt, I dressed up as a giant chicken, and my trusty white balance dog (patent pending) dressed up as a gorilla. I almost got away with it. Dang, there was just no cover in this field.

Oh - look, there's that giant chicken

Wait a minute. That's not a chicken!

Let's get out of here - it's that human and wolf

Yeeah, looks like they sniffed you out there Dave - Man, what an inquisitive expression on the goose on the bottom right

Yeah, right after that shot was taken, they hoped right out of my viewfinder. The guy on the left was the actual sentry - Maybe it was shift change. I've never figured out how they pick the sentry. Here's a close crop - As you can see, I interupted lunch.

Yeah, I like the dead on stare of that one on bottom. You've been had for sure.



You may have to trade the giant chicken suit for a pop up blind, Dave.
