The Kelp Goose, Chloephaga hybrida, is a member of the duck, goose and swan family Anatidae. It is in the shelduck subfamily Tadorninae. It can be found in the Southern part of South America; in Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, and the Falkland Islands. Wikipedia

I took a few pictures of these two Kelp Geese in the Falkland Islands but this one with the female taking a vogue pose is one of my favourites.
