This is a wonderful image, Sherry! Great work! #425280

Penny 4/11/2006 7:13:58 PM

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?

Bob Cournoyer level-classic 4/11/2006 7:18:47 PM

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

Susana Ms Heide level-classic 4/11/2006 8:17:56 PM

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! #2634161

Sherry S. Boles level-classic 4/11/2006 8:19:35 PM

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! :) #2634165
