Thank you for your appreciated coments Clifford.

I can't think of a nicer place to be right now than on a pond full of water lilies. The colors and textures of the goose's markings contrast so nicely with the water lilies and I especially like the expressive pose this bird has given you. Beautiful tones and detail in this portrait Yves.. and one of your best.

Thank you very much for the comments Heather. I took many shots of Canada geese last summer, its normal. And I was quite happy with that one.

Nice lighting Yves really brings out a lot of detail in the Canada Goose’s feather. You have captured the goose at a very pleasing angle. The image has a very calming effect, maybe because it has been so cold here with lots of bone chilling wind.

Yves Langlois

Thank you so much Debra. Yes, I was very lucky with the lighting on that morning. I love the texture (kind of sparkles) all along the neck. I crop it for a close portrait but you would have liked best the original photo. A lot more calming feeling.

Certainly one of my successful portrait of the iconic bird
