I think Canada Geese are the most common bird bird in Southern Ontario. I have even seen them in the open animal compounds at the Toronto Zoo.

Both versions are really nice - but I prefer the second. Well done!

Nice capture, and I think I like the second one best...the edit makes the reflections and ripples stand out more.

Lovely photos. I love to photograph the Canada geese. Right now we are starting to hear the honking as they gather together in large flocks to head south.

I like the rippling water and the close up of the goose. Like the processing of the second shot too.

U nas takie piękne ptaki nie pływają po wodzie, ale są inne też ładne. Zdjęcia cudowne. Pozdrawiam.
With us such beautiful birds do not fly through the water, but there are others too nice. Photos wonderful. Yours.
