The young goslings were still doing well on Friday, and still attracting plenty of attention around Falmer Pond. Here are a few more shots which come with a ‘high cuteness’ warning attached.
The goslings are still tiny, but they’ll eventually grow to be a mighty goose, like this adult greylag.
That’s another slow-shutter shot. I’m gathering plenty of them at the moment as part of a FotoBuzz project on action photography. It’s a great place for learning from real experts at wildlife and landscape photography, and with some luck and hard graft it should help me improve and refine what I shoot.
Here’s another couple of shots in the same mode.
Back in the garden, the badgers have been great fun. Today’s photos are of badger number 2. I don’t think it’s the female in the video I posted, which means there are at least three humbugs visiting. This one is smaller than the male who has featured in most of the recent photos, and I suspect has been in fewer fights and scrapes. It’s not as bold as the big guy, but is becoming more tolerant.
Camera note: all bird photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens. The badger was photographed with the EF70-300mm 4.5-5.6 DO IS lens.
