I had the chance to capture this new comer at the marsh.

The girl showed up the day before but the weather was
not too nice. She has proven to be a great poser. :)

My grandma always repeated that one should go to bed 
less an idiot than the day before… I made it a moto! :P

Quite similar to the Greylag but a tad smaller and with dis-
tinctive brest and belly markings. There is a "Lesser White
Fronted Goose" that has a larger white front… go figure! :P
Neither has the rough neck of the Greylag.
