You Called?

A goose very interested in my sandwich, arriving to perhaps receive some morsels. Of course he got some. :)

Congratulations on you your image You Called winning the Canadian Native Bird Challenge. However, as an amateur Canadian photographer - and birder - I can see that your image appears to be that of a Gray Lag Goose which is native to northern and central Eurasia. I suspect that many non-Canadians - and perhaps Canadians - suspected that yours was an image of a Canada Goose. Again congratulations on your win!

Forgive my meagre knowlege in ornithology... I truly believe[d] this to be a Canadian species of goose. You\'re however welcome to challenge my win, no problems about it from my side! And thanks!πŸ˜‰

I would never dream of challenging. And it is a great image that makes me smile. I just happen to be a real bug when it comes to details. Everyone who know me knows that. For example, right now it is bothering me that there is a typo in my first comment to you and there is no way that ViewBug allows me to make that correction without deleting the whole message. Anyway, once again, sincere congratulations!

Nothing special, bar some cropping.
In my camera bag
To me it is easier to carry a photo vest than any photo bag. So I load my photo vest with whatever I might need for my photo session, walk or trip. My photo bags usually keep the equipment I'm not using at the moment. The vest's many pockets usually contain two cameras, spare batteries, ND and CPL filters, and one small photo clamp instead of a tripod. Sometimes I'll include a small action camera, mainly for its wide field of view and resistance to water and weather. The vest has large-lens pockets that holds a small water bottle, a sandwich, or a bar of chocolate if I plan on being out for the whole day. There is about three meters length of paracord or similar strong, thin rope, one hefty pocket knife, and a lighter. With these, much can be "mcgyvered" along the way, so that's all I need. Recently I make it even more comfortable for me, and take the essentials along in a waist pouch. Simplicity and comfort; two best ingredients in most situations!
Inquire if you are allowed to feed the birds, and if allowed, throw them something to make them interested. Look for interesting behavior, rather than a fight over the food... :)
