[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photographed this unknown goose yesterday; I doubt whether it is a bird hybrid or not. And whether it is a female or a male? Guess it is a male as the colours are quite vivid and saturated...
I did a short random internet ID search. Didn't find anything though...and it is Sunday after all:-)
I admit my nature knowledge is rather limited. And my time too...
And I'm sure someone will know the anser, I mean answer;-). Bad joke.
Quite satisfied about the image.

Update: Uleko ...Ulla gave me the ID. Many thanks.
It is a Bar-headed goose.

Hi Annick,

Nice portrait of the unknown goose. The black and white with the yellow beak is very attractive against the BG.

Preciosa y original la cabeza de este ave,
buen trabajo y detalles excelentes,saludos Annick

Hi Anni,
Une image très bonne de ce canard joli, très intéressants les données photographiques

Hi Annick

Well managed exposure of the whites. Details are well seen in the plumage. Nice wee catchlight and the OOF BG is stunning. Awesome camera work. :-)

Hi Annick.
The best regards from its Twin.
Amazing reporting portrait. Great reflection of its state of mood and outward details (especially plumage). Shot is composed and exposed excellently too. My congratulations and TFS.

Hi Annick,
It looks like a Bar Headed GOOse to me which I think are Egyptian bit not sure about that.
Lovely picture. I think you are bribing them to pose for you!!

Bonjour Annick,
Beau portrait de cette oie bien mignonne. Belles couleurs, grande netteté et un arrière-plan très discret en font une image excellente.
Bonne journée

Je n'avais jamais vu de telles oies ! Très jolie photo.
