Canada Goose

At this time of year the Canada Geese can get a little bit feisty. Recently I was hissed at and chased off a city centre car park by one particularly aggressive individual, and this after it had tried to remove the hubcaps from a car that got a little too close. I don't think I'd have felt so silly if it were a group of youths giving me grief, but I was told from a very young age that one of these 'could break your arm'. I wasn't going to hang around to disprove the theory (which I don't believe by the way Mum). I'm pretty sure, as I am each year, that this goose was just being protective of its partner or potential nest site. I have no problem with that.
With that all said, I thought I'd try and show the Canada Goose in a more positive light, with some pictures taken when they were more relaxed and peaceful.
