Elle est vraiment belle, ta bernache avec son bec ouvert. J'aurai voulu en faire une aussi belle, mais mes photos n'ont rien donné.
La tête de l'oie est très nette et j'aime la position de sa langue, très bonne composition dans l'ensemble

This pose brings a smile to my face, and I think the title is coming out of the swan. Very nice diagonal stretch of the long neck across the frame and still sharp in focus, while having a good bokeh blur of BG.
I can imagine how close you were to the swan from this filled up photo frame of the long neck. Great work.
Happy 2009 to you and your shooting.

Hi, dear Valerie.
I am very pleased with your heartiness and amazing warm words of encouragement. I am happy to have such friends as you here. And I get true delight from your wonderful pictures and interesting notes. Let new year will be happy and successful for you and your relatives
You managed to freeze an amazing moment and scene. Pose of the goose as well as vertical orientation of the image and composition are great. DOF as well as sharpness of the bird image and blurriness of the colourfull BG are fine too. My compliments and TFS.

A wondwerful capture, taken with excellent timing, that shows an open-mouthed Canada Goose taken from an excellent POV with great sharpness and detail. The composition of the head and neck against a fine neutral BG is first class. He may well be Saying Happy New Year and that's what I wish you too!

spettacolare immagine di buon auspicio e di un felice augurio per il Nuovo Anno, eccellenti POV e composizione con il collo dell'oca canadese inclinato all'indietro che dà vigore e movimento, bellissimo il momento di cattura e l'espressione colta, ottima definizione, magnifici i colori e stupendo OOF BG.

Very good new year shout here with this cute mugshot. Very neat tall frame capture capturing the long neck. Flawless sharpness and details with very well muted background. I like it and thanks for sharing.
Valerie, please forgive me for my very very late response to this extremely beautiful and befitting new year post you made a week ago. I was in the process of moving house and made sporadic entries and exits on TN. Now I am almost settled with my son and his family.
The portrait picture of this Canada Goose is simply delightful. The Goose is smiling away in a state of extreme contentment and even showing its 'teeth' :).
Its eye too shines with the sense of happiness.
I am sure they liked your company.
I have to say "Happy New Year" to you in response to this wonderful new year gift.
BTW, I liked your well written note.
Thanks and keep warm.
PS: Now I am happy with your profile picture. Thanks.
