Like water off a duck's back ..

Actually, like water off a Canadian Goose's back, giving him (or herself) a bath.  Shot taken yesterday during our late-Winter stroll through James McFaul Environmental Center in Wyckoff.
The geese were especially vocal, and on the move, all day.  From early morning, we saw several large flocks overhead in their classic "V" formation.  And from deep in the woods at the environmental center, we could hear their honking.  Spring must be right around the corner.

To freeze the motion of the water and keep the bird in focus, I shot at ISO 2000 at f14.0 for 1/800s in bright sun, with my Nikkor 70-200 mm 2.8 VRII lens.  Click on image to get a closer look.  Use back arrow to return.
