Photographer's Note

Le couple de bernaches du Canada (oies sauvages ou outardes) reste uni pour la vie. Les principaux prédateurs de ses oeufs sont les mouettes et les renards arctiques et roux qui en font une réserve en cas de famine.

Those are Canada geese (Barnacle in Europe) that live forever as a couple. Eventhough they are ardent protectors of the brood, they can loose some eggs or chicks stolen by seagulls and by white or red foxes that store the eggs in case of famine.
