Angry Goose/Watery Wednesday

Temper, temper!

This guy is super mad! What's he so upset about?

Another male Canada goose is invading his territory

It's mating season and male Canada geese have zero tolerance for rivals. (Yep, the photo IS a bit fuzzy but I wanted you to see what all the fuss was about!)

I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.

Lúcia said...

Perfect timming on the first shot!!!
It's so fun to see his face! ;-)

The geese get pretty excited this time of year. You caught a great shot.

I agree with everyone else. The first shot with the bird's open bill is terrific; I can ever hear the noise!

Halcyon said...

So funny! I can hear their squawks all the way here in North York!! :)

Farmchick said...

That first shot is so great. Love the expression on the bird's face.

Small City Scenes said...

excellent shot, EG. You really captured his mood. I have a pair that have staked out the pond and they will not let any other geese near at all. The occasional duck they don't care about. Fine with me I don't want a lot of geese around anyway. MB

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Got a smile out of me this morning. I've been chased by gooses! They bite! Not fun! This one looks very dangerous...

Re your question on Ocala DP: I admit to nothing!

Kathy said...

Hey, Loosey-Goosey, get your beak off my woman!

Lois Evensen said...

Jack said...

The first shot made me laugh!

Chesney said...

Kerri said...

Birgitta - foto CHIP said...

What a capture EG! Very special and very fun :)

Malyss said...

It's funny to see..in pictures! I would not like to be in front of that guy!

kaye said...

I'll confess I'm scared of geese, they are mean :/

RedPat said...

They can certainly be mean. I thought that he was after you in the 1st shot - you would be in big trouble if he was!

Reader Wil said...

We have a lot of Canada geese here as well. The couples stay together their entire life. It's great to see them swimming with their chicks between them. One of the parents swims ahead and the other at the back of the row of chicks.

Janie said...

Great action shots. That angry male goose will do a good job of taking care of his mate and offspring!

ewok1993 said...

hahaha! what a priceless expression. great action shot.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Yikes! Talk of protecting your turf or is it water.

JM said...

Great timing. Fantastic!

Snap said...

Leif Hagen said...

Timing is sometimes everything and yours was perfect! Fun snaps!

Cecilia Artista said...

I just love your first shot of the angry goose!
Great shot!

DoanLegacy said...

Oh boy, he looked angry indeed, but these are great captured!

Dharma Shots said...

Worth the fussy photo...:D thanks for sharing.

Genie said...

I guess I’d be a little miffed, too. I would not have thought these guys would be so territorial. They really mean business from the look on that angry one’s face. Great captures...but then your shots are always great captures. Hope you are having a good week up there in the northland. We are freezing gain down here...cold and very windy. Will it ever end???

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I SEE what it's all about and the pictures are so good I can almost hear the noise!!

Judy said...

It is that time of year! All the displays, and the songs - we think they are for us, but they are really to stop those pesky invaders!!

Ai KaiRui Liu said...

Rebecca said...

Perfect timing on that first shot!

Ann said...

were you stealing their eggs?

Our geese don't fly, but when they charge at you, it is very frightening.
