Ok so there is no such thing as a moon goose, but this is the next best thing.
These are Brent Geese, flying across the moon this morning at Dell Quay in Sussex.
The weather was again cold but sunny with no wind.
Neat Image used.

Nice, very original!
Your timing was bang on too to get the wings and the goose infront. The silhouette worked out very nicely.
Take care,

Hello Michael,

very "romantic" shot - a key of goose leaving their homeland.... till the next year :-) Some more contrast would make this shot more clear :-)
Great capture,

Hi Michael,
Rushed morning, very busy day.
Still have time to see that this shot is well worth a big green smiley.
Have a great weekend.

This is a good shot. Very well composed and the moon as a backdrop was just a great idea. Well done & TFS!
