Keep them coming for me Ann, images of this quality don't land in your lap. Great use of the wonderful light bringing out all the details in the feathers and the ever watchful eye of the goose.
I watched and heard a huge flight of geese going East last year near Tongue, they flew up the estuary and turned east at Ben Loyal, they seemed to use the mountain as a marker for the turn, all of this was through my binoculars, I was glad I had them with me to see one of the great wonders of avian intelligence.

This crop is so right, it gives an image that is very recognisably duck, but also works as a set of abstract lines and shapes, contained very tautly within the frame.
