The pose you captured is really beautiful. Exposure is just perfect and composition is superb! Today it is 0 here so I guess that spring must be near too... It is so a big contrast with those temperatures we had these past days...
This is a very nice capture of a bird that I have never seen "in real" from so close. Thanks,

I'm glad spring is arriving at your place too!
Beautiful shot of this Canada Goose looking in the mirror! Sharp details and beautiful light.
We have these in the fields here too. I think they're very beautiful! Great composition!
TFS and regards, Ulla

A very good image.
Good sharpness and so forth; overall technically well done.
It's also a beauty; the image as well as the depicted geese; the latter seems to be in good condition despite the cold and the drinking problem.

What a wonderful "story" this shot tells, Rick.
I love the juxtaposition of the water and ice, and the goose's obvious dilemma in trying to get a drink.
The ripples and the reflection are very cool.
I also find the curve of the goose's neck fascinating and aesthetic.
TFS. : )

Those reflections are unbelievable. I love the ripple in the water where he is drinking. Still looks pretty cold to me - summer is almost here in Arizona.

Interesting caption to this beautiful picture, Rick!
The low POV almost at level with the height of the bird has turned your capture into a masterpiece.
Excellent profile view from which the graceful beauty of the bird is highlighted very effectively.
The reflection of the head and the legs on shallow water also looks very attractive here.

Nice timing, great pose!
The bit of reflection is certainly the eye grabber.

Great POV and DOF. Lovely light - a great shot all round.
Canada Geese were introduced to the UK about a hundred years ago and have now got out of control - there are hundreds of them in parks, gardens, nature reserves etc and they are now the most common goose here.
