Spent a few hours at Busch Gardens yesterday. I hope I got some good photos to share over the next few weeks.

We went to the park a couple of Tuesdays ago for an hour or so. There was a field trip of some sort there. Lots of kids, and lots of geese filled the parking lot watching the kids come in from there boat rides. This was one of the many bold feathered friends that approached our van looking for a hand out.

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Kodak Max ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/250 +1 EV
Aperture Setting - f-5.6 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 70-300mm zoom lens
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

Yay! I'm here first. Maybe. If I can type quickly enough.

Lovely goose shot. Almost black and white. You could do a penguin like this too. And it wouldn't even mind being stuck in teh freezer for half and hour.

A fine, very close capture. Did you have something to feed the goose?

Nice portrait shot :-) but in my mind it would be look better if the goose where on the right side of the photo or just looking to the left :-)

Aw, isn't he cute. I love animals, as you know, but these geese are a bit bold and their populations are amazing. Here in Charlotte, you see them everywhere, except downtown. I guess that they don't like the traffic or something.

Lovely photo.

Lovely! I had the same idea today. I was at the park for a few and got some silly ducks.

I'd say, "Nice goose!" like the previous comment, but that just seems so rude somehow...

This end of the Canada goose is fine. I find the other end more problematic! Thanks for this shot.

Love the composition here. Simply outstanding! I quickly browsed through your archives and I see a distinct film look in many of your images. Nice to see.

Yesterday I got 30 rolls of 6x6 film back from the lab. It was such a joy to lay those down on the lightable...

Nice shot Micki! I always think that Canada Geese have a plastic looking beak! :D

Neat portrait I’m sure he’d want to send back to his folks in Canada. A very successful bird judging by my locals.

Clearly, the goose knew you were to arrive with cameras since he's quite obviously dressed in formal wear and ready for his close-up :-)
