A couple of years ago we went to Hindmarsh Island,
across the bridge from Goolwa, South Australia.
The Cape Barren Geese were grazing in a field next to the road.
There were bushes along the road, so I had to get out of the car
to get a shot.
I was used to the very tame flock on Kangaroo Island, so was
surprised at how skittish these were. Although I was behind
cover, they were on the alert as soon as I got out of the car
and took off after the first ground shot I got.
Suddenly they were all in the air, up, up, and away . . .
