Birds of a feather, indeed flock together. On the banks of Esquimalt Lagoon (Vancouver Island) you will find flocks of geese, swans, ducks, seabirds and many more species I can’t identify.
While out shooting, I was utterly entertained by the birds’ behaviour as a woman was feeding them. They followed her the length of the lagoon as she sprinkled seeds along the way. I certainly could not ask for a better set up. The birds were too occupied with eating, so I was able to get up close enough to capture the details in their feathers. Perfect!
As I was setting up to shoot from a different angle, this goose started scratching himself with abandon, so naturally I focused in on him. Suddenly he let out this loud, unexpected honk. Hilarious, surprising and I think two shots with the most character.
