Oh, aren't they funny. Must be a nest around. Geese really believe they own the world, don't they?

I don't believe I'd get in this guy's way! Looks like he's on a mission. And welcome back! I've been missing your posts.

Hissing geese are so scary!

Great pic, Lynne!

Great shot! That is one ticked-off goose! I wouldn't want to get in his/her way, noooo sir.

Was he 'hissing' or 'burping' I laughed at this one. Great shot!

That's just a wonderful, fantastic—and funny shot!

My "yard" goose chased a Cooper's hawk off yesterday, and had much the same "don't mess with me I'm a baaaaad bird!" expression. Didn't get the picture, though.

Great post!

Heidi said...

I guess they do have a bit of an attitude :) Beautiful never the less!

NatureWoman said...

"All hands on deck! Torpedo in the water!!"

Wonderful shot, Lynne! I'm not sure I would have stayed around long enough to take more than the one picture, though.... ;-)

troutbirder said...

I used to think they thought they were hiding with this low in the water by the nest move.... but hissing blows that cover.

KatDoc said...

Hope you were using a L-O-O-O-N-G lens for that shot!

Tina said...

Boy Lynne, what did you do to deserve this reaction?
...that is a pretty cool catch with your camera..just glad he was in the water when he felt this way and not out where he could chase at you!!

BirdBoy said...

Eve said...

Ha ha ha!! Great shot Lynne!!!

Marsha said...
