Hahahaha.... zooming in is necessary on this one as the thumbnail belies the true story here Russ

Very nicely observed and very funny!

You HAVE been having a spot of weather I hear!


Best wishes - Jethro (in warmer climes)

Thanks Jethro. Spotted them taking off as I pulled up nearby in the car. I knew where they were going as they passed overhead honking away so I ran across the road to the canal bridge putting the long lens on as I went. Was just in time to get four shots as they touched down on the ice. They are about 50 yards away. In the next shot the lead goose turns round and faces the others as if to say, "well done lads. Cool landing.".
