[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the same little guy from a previous posting, who at this time seems to be deep in tought, altrough most likely looking at some food source on the water and trying to decide wether to eat it or not, one cant help but wonder: is he looking at his own reflection? or at his own feet?, (like human babies looking in awe to their own hands). what does he make of it?

In either case its time for us to do some thinking about the gone 2008.

I wish you a happy new year full of great photos and trips for 2009.

Feliz aņo nuevo!

hello Simon

Great color contrast of the yellow to the blue! I like the close up shot showing very good clarity and sharpness. The hair is really fantastic.

Wish you all the best of 09.

tfs, bill

Hello Simon

A very cute capture,I am amazed how tiny the wings are at this stage of their life.
The colours are vivid and contrast nicely.
The light is well done,and the water seems to be reflecting and illuminating the gosling in the right way to enhance the colour.
Nicely composed in the frame with a terrific POV,and I agree the little goose does look like he is pondering something much bigger than himself,but is probably seeing a doodle bug that looks tasty.LOL.
All the best for 2009.
