    Long time, no post, so I went to the park this morning and shot mostly film, but did manage to get a couple of fun digital pics as well.

    This first one was standing just perfectly so it looked like he was standing on one leg. Then he folded his neck and- Perfect stork pose!

    This one was checking me out while I was changing a roll of film. Snuck right up on me. This is from about 15 feet or so...

    While the first catches a great moment, I too like the second shot better. Don't wildlife photos look so much better when you capture the reflection off of the subjects eye?

    Love the second shot as well. I do believe it is better when your photographing an animal/bird/reptile etc. that you need to make sure it's looking at you through the lens. Makes such a difference.

    I like how the second one looks like it is looking down on you.

    I like the second one too, nice bright colors,
    think the background in the first one is distracting :scratch:

    Yeah, the background in the first one sucks, but this is basically a trench dug with with a bulldozer, so there isn't any way to get down to the water without getting wet up to your waist & covered in goose crap & well... I just ain't that dedicated for a scouting mission! :lol:

    I need to go back with bread crumbs or crackers so they don't run off so quickly. Even though they get fed constantly & are generally quite tame they will wander off as you approach unless you have food for them.

    The second one is from a mixed group of white domestics, a smaller goose I'd not seen before (& haven't identified yet) and these mixed breeds. Notice the black bill & orange feet. This is a domestic goose crossed with a Canadian. Black bill, grey back & neck, orange feet, white bottom. Rather funny!

    Several times a day they parade single file across the road, stopping traffic as they go. Rather amusing to watch. :D

    Yell, I under you can’t all way have a good background, if you get a chance to get more shots think DOF, I know Monday quarter backing, I have used the blur command a few time to add a DOF affect with photo software (I use Corel), but the results have been mixed
