Canada Goose

On the same day I shot these Pelicans, I found this lone goose hiding in a canal nearby.

Crop, slight color and contrast adjust, downsized

Hi Otto,
this is a nice looking capture of this goose with good detail,colour and focus however at f/4.6 the depth of field and the exposure suffer somewhat, f/8 may have been a better Av setting giving you a more natural look.Nice one and thank you for sharing. Bob

Bonsoir Otto,

Hi Otto,
Great job on this exposure in some bright light. Colors look great with no real OE in the whites. Nice sharp detail. We have so many down here they are becoming bad pests. We would like to send alot of them back to you up north. Nice shot!

Bonjour Otto
C'est un belle prise de vue que cette Bernache du Canada .. La composition, la pose, la netteté... tout est parfait.
Merci de partager et au revoir....JP

Hi Otto,
Nice detail, DOF, & natural color. Well composed in the wide frame..Distinctive looking quacker :) Well done.

Hello Otto,
They are very popular with the farmers here, hahaha! Seems like they eat about anything when they are on their Northern flyway...
This guy is well captured with good details in the plumage!
