Camera Critter #93

The other day, a friend of mine stopped by and said, "Let's go shoot something." So I grabbed my camera and off we went. Since we both like photographing aircraft, our first stop was at the airport waiting for incoming and outgoing flights.

When the action died down, we decided to check a few other spots around town. At our next stop, Fireman's Pond, we got out of the car and every duck and goose in the area came running. Since they are accustomed to people feeding them, they surely thought my friend and I were going to do the same thing.

However, as the domestic goose led the pack towards me, they all stopped when I raised my camera and fired off a couple of shots. I guess the goose decided it was time to express its displeasure at me for not having any food and spread its wings, then honked rather loudly at me.

As it finished 'chewing' me out for not bringing food, it turned to the side, bared its teeth and I swear growled at me. I didn't know how much trouble I was really in until I looked at the photo of it later at home. 8v)


Those are some nasty looking teeth for a bird.

Great captures! No wonder geese are often used as guards.

I've been mobbed a few times by ducks but they don't usually have a goose general. Great pictures. Loving the ducks.

I've never seen teeth on a goose! That's a very cool shot.

Great photos! My favourite is the first one too. In my country, there are guard geese in the military bases instead of guard dogs. Sometimes geese can be really agressive.
