Greater White-fronted Goose in the snow


This Greater White-fronted Goose was taken on November 29, 2014 on the rugby field next to Jericho Park in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It was the only representative of its species in a gaggle of Canada Geese. As was the case with yesterday’s photo of a sparrow, the freshly fallen snow and colder temperature meant that this bird was quite “sticky” and so I was able to get quite close to it.

Taken on November 29, 2014 with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 400, 300mm, f/6.3, 1/1600). Not baited, called in or set up.
