Birds of a Feather

Animals, Close-Up, Nature

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.

Entranced by rural and urban decay. I am drawn to these forlorn sites because they emote conflicting sentiments of beauty and disintegration.
