Picnic in the Park

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 29 May 2012 in Animal & Insect.

After a few days of rain, there were a lot of puddles in a field at a nearby park. The Canadian Geese were munching away!

A peaceful scene you have captured. I like the pattern of the feathers on their bodies.

Beautiful light in this well composed shot Elaine! Although they may be Canadian by birth the proper name for the species is Canada Geese. ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Thanks Eric. I will definitely remind people down here because they are all not referring to these beautiful geese by their proper name, including me!

That is beautiful Elaine, I like how the water ripples and creates a neat reflection. The gold and greens are fabulous, nice detail on the geese. They look well fed too! Very nice!

Beautiful post-processing achieved here! I love the "tight" ripples on the surface of the water and the pattern of the goose's plumage.
