Some additional images from our trip to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville NJ. The main attraction here is the Wildlife Drive that circles around the main visitor areas. It is about 8 miles long, one way, circling the main active viewing areas. In the early Spring there are multiple Osprey platforms along the Drive for watching Ospreys building nests and see them feeding their young. They also have multiple trails for exploring and a Visitor Center.

I usually do not photograph Canada Geese, but I thought this one coming right at me was an interesting view. It was strange seeing it looking at me as I was photographing it. This was taken years ago with the Sigma 300-800mm lens @ 800mm. Watching it coming at me I was wondering when it would turn. It finally did but was fairly close when it did turn.

Along the Wildlife Drive at the Edwin B Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, I noticed these Canada Geese near the entrance. They were standing and sitting on thin sections of ice. The cold did not seem to bother them. They stayed fairly quiet until later when the sun came out more and the ice started melting and they started moving about.

As I was photographing the Black-capped Chickadee this Canada Goose came up and was staring at me. Maybe wondering what I was doing. It stayed awhile then swam off. 400mm w/ 1.4x teleconverter.

While I was photographing various ducks passing by me, I saw this small tight group of Canada Geese coming in for a landing. I liked the warm background color and the tight grouping of the geese along with the reflections in the water. So I shot a few images but liked this one the best. Usually I ignore the Canada Geese but was glad I shot a series on these. Next I want to practice panning along with them, just have to wait for more geese to come by.

I found this Canada Goose on its own little Ice Island. It was sleeping, not noticing all the other activity around him. The image seemed colorful with the blue water and white ice, plus interesting with the broken reeds reflecting in the water. Soon the other activities surrounded him and he still did not seem to care. This duck walked into the shot and stopped in front of the Goose. I kept my focus on the Goose, not realizing the Mallard entering. If I had noticed and thought of it, I would have focused on the Mallard also and blended them together, but this was an afterthought.
