Valley Views: Local photographers aim their cameras outdoors
WILD GOOSE CHASE
Pondside Road, Longmeadow
Photograph and text by Pedge Daniels of Longmeadow
This mute swan, an expectant papa, was very busy attempting to clear all Canada geese from a pond along Pondside Road in Longmeadow while his mate sat on their nest. On the day I took this photo last April, two of the geese were being exceptionally troublesome, and our hero took after one of them in full flight. The image was created with a point-and-capture camera at a wide-angle setting.
