The goose in front of the mute swan looks like it is ice skating. :)

I heard a pygmy owl tooting away the other night as darkness was settling in.

Thanks a lot for the compliment Richard and Lynne. The funny thing about the pic is that is was raining like CRAZY when I snapped the pic. It was literally a point and shoot.

Natural moments, yeah the geese really add some life to the pic don't they. There were literally hundreds of geese on the pond and just one swan. Pygmy owl - WOW! See if you can track it down for me, I'd love to see a pic.

Awesome shot! Isn't it funny that often those 2 second point and shoot shots in unfavorable weather conditions turn out to be some of the best - go figure!

Hi Barbara,

Too true. The lighting is a little weird in the picture, but I think it adds to the drama.

Thanks for popping in!
