    This male goose was keeping watch over the pond, the background grasses border a small island where the female was sitting on eggs.

    hi Jon, everything works fine for me. The detail is perfect in black. I loved it a lot. The greenery in the front is a click eye-catching.

    congratulations.

    Sharp with a good exposure. But with the sun almost right overhead and the big shadow under the tail, this one does not do much for me.

    You handled the light well. What's in the water lily pads?

    I like the placement of the goose and the look back pose.
    Water is a bit messy but I can live with it!
    The shadows on the rump are such a strange shape- I keep trying to figure out how they were created,
