I took a total of three shots. All nice and clear. This was the best of the three. I was about 2 metres from them.

Awesome~ :)

On my walk home from work yesterday, I saw baby geese swimming a few meters from where I was walking. I also walked past another two watching over eggs. Except... I thought the male was going to peck me because it was arm reach away and wouldn't move off the path. <.< At least he didn't, he just sort of kept an eye on me. >.>

There's also tons of swallows? flying around that bridge, sometimes I stop and watch them race under and fly around after work. They're so pretty. :)

Lucky. I haven't seen swallows in years. They don't hang out in my area. Last bunch of swallows I saw were barn swallows on my grandparents farm over ten years ago.

Aww, I have to admit I haven't seen them in years too until just recently. They have all sorts of nest near that bridge. It's really nice to see, I'll try to get a picture sometime... but they move pretty quick.

They are fairly speedy. Set the lens to action shot and hope for the best?

Sadly, I scared them away while mowing the lawn. They returned later in the evening and sat together on the bench. They weren't gone today.
