Wounded Goose

I had a rather eventful Saturday, which upset my plans to spend my morning on a photowalk. Even so, I managed to take a couple of mile stroll on my way to the pharmacy and managed to capture some images.

The most notable of these was of one goose who had lost a toe, and was left hobbling. It couldn’t keep its balance and looked sore. It walked right up to me where I was shooting, as the rest of its companions foraged in the greening grass. The poor animal almost seems to be showing off its wound.
