NatureFootstep: Winged #96

Thursday's theme at NatureFootstep is 'Winged'. For all things 'winged', but not necessarily 'feathered' (flying insects are welcome).

    1. Thanks Kathy. This goose isn't indigenous to this area. I photographed them at the National Wetlands Centre, about 50 miles from here. They have resident groups of quite a few species not native to the UK.

  8. "sweet" was the first word entering my mind when I saw your goose. A very sweet and gentle look. Don´t think I´ve seen this one before. :)

    1. Thanks NF :-)) This one certainly seemed to have a placid nature, let me get quite close and wasn't aggresive at all.
