A four-second kerfuffle. I was alerted by a lot of agitated conversation amongst the goosey set.

The bird at center has just landed and is making clear that this patch of water ain't big enough for the both of 'em.

You ain't listenin' so good, feller... (the chase is on & a look of alarm spreads on the offender's face. It's interesting how the focus has shifted between the two heads in these two frames.)

(Here's an interesting AF fail. The plane of focus is clearly behind both birds - note the tussock in the water on the left. The tail feathers on the chasing bird are close to the plane of focus.)

Git out!!! (This is the subsequent frame and may be a new pump on the shutter. The AF has shifted to the chasing bird's head.)

Elapsed time, four seconds. My adrenalin levels probably matched those of the geese...

Shot with 5-box AF target, low silent. Given the amount of superfluous detail in the scene, I'm pleased the sequence came out as well as it did.
