zoom in on the nest

Last week I spotted seven nesting birds on various small islands in the rive, each guarded by a male bird - in fact the guard is often the first thing I spot as the goose nests are well camouflaged


The white swans stand out but did you see the goose on her nest on the far right of the zoom out photo?

enjoying the continuing range of subjects you are choosing for zoom in and zoom out

Another lovely example of the treats that looking more closely can bring.

it's so easy to miss these little treasures.

Canada Geese everywhere!! I have never actually been able to find a nest...probably best since they will protect it!
Love swans too...

It's a lovely time of year for birds, Helena. You reminded me of more photos I took of birds while I was away. Another ZIZO, me thinks!

Ah yes, those Canada geese are everywhere! They're pretty but awfully noisy. And they, um, well,let's see, how to say this politely - they leave a big mess on the ground! I wish we had swans. I guess it's too cold for them up here.

Good capture - I can just barely make it out in the zoom out picture. Not exactly a bird fond of here as they make such a horrible mess.

Great capture sitting on the nest!

I had to search to find the nest in the Zoom Out. He's quite a handsome guard!

You have a great eye for things other might miss, Helena.
