Bird Photo Competition 2012 : Entry Number 278

Judges Comment

A wide-angle shot from an ultra-low viewpoint places the viewer right in the middle of the goose flock, the repeating orange bills and feet contrasting with the cool blues of the winter scene.

My name is Davy Curran and i'd like to thank " I Shot It " for the photo recognition . This was taken while hiking around a lake in Ireland , with my Nikon D300 and a Tamaron 18-270mm lens open all the way to18mm and a shutter speed of 1/800. Luckily there was someone else to my right feeding the geese which drew their attention and enabled me to get down to ground level and capture the shot .
