Duck, Duck, Goose by AuntDot

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D; Canon 55-250 lens; 1/250s, f/5.6, ISO 125, focal length 250.0mm; cross process in Picasa3.9
Photo taken in Seminole, Florida, U.S.A.

I feel rather stupid not knowing for sure if these are all geese, as my hubby thinks, or two ducks and one goose. I read that the nostrils of a goose are much lower on the beak and a goose has a longer neck and is a larger bird, so I’m thinking two ducks and a goose. Please someone correct me if I’m wrong! How did I make it to age 68 without knowing the difference!!!

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    I am not sure Dot, but it certainly is a nice capture. I love the blue cast to the water…

  • Thank you so much, Carol! I didn’t like this photo until I tried the cross processing. Seems to give it more interesting color. Doesn’t work well on most of my images, though.
