[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photographed this duck or goose in a small zoo in Lille
(France). It was definitely a loner. It wasn't afraid either.
Going to browse the TrekNature gallery to find its identification. I think there was a post recently with a similar species.
So long...

I liked the yellowish and brownish colours coming back into the background.

Hi Annick,
Another nice portrait! Nice DOF and colours. The brown on brown make a different picture. It's funny, with a french title, you have more french critiques ;)

Wow, Annick.
A gorgeous portrait of this Nene goose, the state goose of the Hawaiian Islands.
They are so beautiful, and quite endangered.
We have seen them in some pockets of Hawaii, but they are not seen that often.
I really like the slight turn of his head, and the wonderful eye contact.
And yes, the monochromatic palette makes for a lovely visual impact.
TFS. : )

Buenas Annick.
Un gran retrato el que nos presentas, con nidez y colorido muy agradable por ese fondo.
Un saludo


great shot. I love the colour palette in this one and the way he is turned towards you.


I look at your picture Couleur Café while I'm drinking my first coffee of the morning, isn't appropriated? :) This is an excellent portrait of a bird that I didn't know. I love the texture of its neck's feathers. This picture is sharp and very well exposed and composed with a beautiful frame. This is a nice one Annick! Thanks,

Hola Annick,
Excelente retrato, luz, nitidez y fondo muy buenos. Un cordial saludo

Hi Annick,
An excellent profile portrait mf.
DOF, POV, color, detail, and exposure is flawless.
Nice catchlight, and this BG and color compliments the subject nicely :)
Very well done.
