Honk!!!
Honk!!!
*April 2006 ~ Monthly Theme (B&W)*

(Small black border applied to distinguish photo edges...otherwise he looked like his head was cut off...lol!)

A mad goose "honking" his disapproval at some approaching geese.

I am so wondering how you got this picture! Is the goose in flight, or running around honking on the ground? Did you have any special tricks up your sleeve to catch this portrait?
Thanks,
Penny

I like it. Alot of things don't work right in the middle of the frame. I think this does. ...:-)

This is GREAT!! There is something intriguing about this photo. Not sure I can pinpoint it. But I do like the contrast of the black and white and the overall "clean" look!

Thank you for your comments, Janelle, Penny and Bob!
Penny, actually he was on the ground, standing in front of me (I had been feeding him crackers). He got angry at some at other geese who were approaching...and I found his outstretched neck and open mouth so funny! :)

This is wonderful Sherry!! We have a pair of geese that come back every year, the kids have named them Sean and Lily, but this is what the female always looks like when she sees us :)
