Field Notes Print Info

These two Canada Geese had been just kind of standing side by side when all the sudden the one on the right let the one on the left have it!

Frankly, I’m not sure what instigated the whole thing, but my bet is the guy on the right asked the wifey for a new camera.

At least that’s what it looks like from my personal experience 😉

About Our Prints....

I currently sell individual prints only. Each image is custom printed in house by me on our commercial grade inkjet printer. Each print is individually inspected and carefully packaged for shipment.

Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.

(Note - we are no longer offering framed prints. The potential for damage in transit was very high and the shipping for large framed prints was outrageous, sometimes costing over $100 for larger pieces. Additionally, we've found our clients seem happier when they can work with their own local framing shop.)


Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.


All prints have a signature in the corner, usually the lower right hand when possible.


Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.


We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.

Thanks for your interest!

    I just love this photograph, Steve! Depending on one’s imagination, you could come up with some really good captions! The first thing that I thought of was that the one on the right was giving the other one a piece of his ‘goose mind’… If he/she was just standing beside the other, he/she might be speaking softly to his/her mate. This looks like a bawling out to me because the neck is stretched out. Lot of times it is the countenance that gives it away. I just love it! Thank you for sharing your talent!

    “If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times…”

    Nah Steve. The goose on the right is sayin to t’other male, “Stay the hell away from my wife or I’ll stick your head in a snowbank.”


  4. B.DeForde says:

    As my mother-in-law used to say,”Your neck is out!” That is what the goose on the left is thinking about the loud mouth on the right. Note her forbearance.

    Excellent Photo – “This is my Inside Voice”

    This is an instance where just about any caption would work. Great Idea for a contest, best caption wins something. Similar to the “Best Photos” ranking from WS subscribers.

    The goose on the right was obviously yelling, “Your behaviour in last night’s party raised gooseflesh on my skin.”

    “Your Goose is COOKED, Mister!”

    Sometimes it is hard to tell the sex of geese.
    But this time it’s obvious.
    Forgetting an item off that Honey-do list can be a … U-know.

    What, a headache again?

    Steve, You take the most amazing pictures of God’s beauty. This picture is so amazing because it is a scene that can’t be captured often. Sure pictures of geese can be shot all the time but to catch this was a gift.
