|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a teenager as Canada Geese go. He's still learning the rules of the pack.|
At least 11 subspecies of Canada Goose have been recognized and as of 2004 some of the smaller subspecies were designated their own species—the Cackling Goose.
Researchers have identified about 13 different calls from Canada Geese. These vary including loud greeting/alarm calls and soft sounds from feeding geese.
While their eggs are incubating females lose their flight feathers, so they cannot fly until after their eggs hatch.
A group of geese has many collective nouns, including a "gaggle", "blizzard", "chevron", "knot", "plump", and "string" of geese.

Beautiful photo of this young Canada Geese,
you captured with very fine POV, DOF, with the
spirals on water and the water color tones,
also the head and neck reflection on the water,
beautiful soft light, great focus, sharpness, details, TFS
I think he looking for Mom. Good capture because it looks like he is moving. Good closeup
with a good POV and DOV and lots of detail. Good management of light.
Thanks for sharing
