Snow Geese (Chen caerulescens)
This is the closest I've ever gotten to Snow Geese...and I used a long lens and cropped heavily...so I wasn't all that close.
A dull day with a few rays of sun shining through
There were only two in this pond with many, many Canada Geese. Here in a pond just north of Toronto if someone is lucky enough to see a Snow Goose, it's usually flying with a gaggle of travelling Canada Geese, which tend to be very alert and noisy if they see a human.
I wonder what they're looking at
I guess I was there long enough for the geese to forget about me. I was excited when I spotted the Snow Geese heading across the pond to a sand spit on my side. But they chose to stay at the far end of the spit, still quite far from me for great photos.
