All photos were taken with 135L.
And a story to go along with it.
Near my house, there is some construction going on for a walmart and a group of I guess stores (smart centers or something.)
There is a fence, and beyond the fenec I saw some water with a Canadian geese and some other ducks I think in it.
So I figure what the heck, how often do I see Canada Geese so close to my house.
I jump the fence, and do not realize how muddy it is. I slip, fall (camera in bag luckily, bag did not even touch ground, just my hands legs shoes, etc). My shoe gets stuck in mud and out goes my foot (now walking on the mud in socks).
Walked back homes, changed into my timberlands (which also got hella dirty), went back, and this time I only saw the geese.

What I do for my craft :D. I need to get millitary gear. Some gheto pants that won't rib and are waterproof (shorts too) which are not too heavy, a shirt like that, some boots with those millitary sleeve things so even if water gets in the boot your socks / feet don't get wet. etc etc.

Thanks.
They cleaned nicely. It's been 48+ hours and still drying though, haha.

Also to note (not sure if this is the same with all geese), this guy did not seem to mind me getting close.

Very nice shots. Well worth the mudding. I really like what you've done with the B&W version- nice reflection on that one.

I snapped a couple of Canada geese a few weeks ago at a water park in Wales. They were pretty used to people and I was able to get close enough to one of them for a full frame head shot without getting muddy. :)
Shot 1 is nice.

I don't know why I went so nuts, it's not like I can't find Geese in a pond or lake if I want. I guess I just wanted them out in the wild where I could get as close as possible (135mm is nice for this stuff.)

Thanks. I did not like the B&W so much, but you and a few others liked it, the more I look at it, the nicer it gets.
Plus, look how sharp it is at 100%
