After having focused on flowers, plants and landscapes in the past days, today I focused on wildlife in the vicinity of my home. I discovered this greylag goose at one of the artificial lakes on the grounds of Munich's Technical University.

In the beginning, the goose took a close look at me, but over time it lost more and more interest in me. I sat down on the ground and watched the goose for about 15 minutes. During this time, the goose came closer and closer and apparently accepted me as not dangerous. In the end, the goose even came so close that I had problems to take full pictures with my 70-200 mm Nikkor lens.

Wildlife photography really requires a considerable portion of patience!
