I was out at the lake today taking in the rays and the sights. With the temps being in the mid-forties and the sun shinning folks turned out to enjoy the day. As I walked around I observed this goose swimming close to the shore line. As it came ashore to search for bits of food left by us hairless apes I took this shot. I am just now trying to learn the different types of geese that populate the lake. I have not been able to identify this one yet but she’s a beauty. Those orange ringed grey-steel eyes and vibrant bill and feet set of the rather understated white with a splash of grey and brown feathers.
The Bride and I made use of the sunshine today by going on a walkabout. I got to test drive my new-to-me Sony A300 and enjoy great company. The lake was not overly crowed because it is still somewhat chilly out but we did have a few feathered friends stop by. Also had a few non-fauna photo ops as well. I tested drove a few of the manual settings as well as auto-pilot. I tried the on board B&W as well. So here are a few at the lake.
