Walter - Great photo. That's what I was hoping to get in my "Goose Fight" photo, but he turned on me and went away from the camera, and, I wasn't at all prepared. All that I got was a sense of the action. Yours is magnificent! Way to go.

Hi, Ward, and thanks for the compliment. Congratulations on the 10D and great set of lenses...get lots of enjoyment out of them!

Yesterday the geese were particularly cantankerous, the sun was just right, and I took about 50 shots of them. Each time there would be a flurry of activity I shot away hoping to get *something,* but I had no idea until I got home that a few of the shots were what I had hoped for. They were kind of "Hail Mary" shots, but thank goodness for burst mode.

I used my D60, which I'm still very happy with, and my 100-400, which you could not pry out of my hands, even if I were dead!

Nice work ! I particularly like the way that the shot has caught the sense of the birds speed - but freezing it at the same time.

Geese will chase anything - even Swans, so definitely best avoided when they are in that mood.
