That is the silliest shadow we've seen...it looks like the goose is in a tutu! (dancing to swan lake perhaps?!!)

Jane ... said...

Great textures in your SS--what a show-off goose!

Ralph said...

He is stepping nicely across the ground. His shadow is equally proud as it paces alongside this waterfowl. Both can be pests yet both step with authority whan above the waterline...

Catherine said...

what a delightful perky shadow!!

Thomma Lyn said...

hehe, what a cute picture -- cute of the goose, and cute of its shadow. :)

Martha Z said...

That shadow looks like he is taking flight when he is really just strolling along. Great shot.

Carolyn Ford said...

Now this is just too cute! I love it...makes me laugh!

Tom Hilton said...

Fun shot. The goose seems so dignified--it's almost as if the shadow is mocking it.

I love geese so much :)

Rosebud Collection said...

What a great shadow. I enjoy seeing the geese fly overhead. You hear a honking sound and there they go, heading somewhere out of here for the summer. Wish I could fly..ha, ha.
Have a great week. Happy SSS.

Tom said...

Where do I start?
I called by to say thank you for your visit and to see your Weekend Reflection shot... but boy did I find more... Loved the rainbow for Sky Watch... and I know that when I browse through your blog there will be more for me to find of interest.

Love the shape of this goose shadow! If you look at it sideways, it looks like an umbrella in the process of collapsing! Very interesting! And love the unknown shadow at the top of the photo!

Hot Fudge said...

Ah, you brought back some happy memories of my year in Canada way back in 1969 when I was young, single and carefree. Beautiful shot.

I would love to say how sweet but I know geese are cheeky so I'll say, "What a cool photograph for SSS!" I really like it, the simplicity of it, tell CGPB I said, "Yeah!"

Stine in Ontario said...

Hehehe. Don't you feel sorry for this goose? Hehehehe. It's trying to act so dignified and everyone is laughing at it? Hehehehe. ;-)

Hey Harriet said...

Clever Crafty Green Boyfriend! An interesting shadow because it looks like the head is in the middle of the body...odd, but really cool!

Selma said...

Looks like he is trying to run away from his shadow. He is a cutie!

Patti said...

"Me and My Shadow ...."

This silly goose has a silly shadow. Great capture.

I like the shadow from his (her) friend as well.

sarala said...

I'll be in Hawaii on Tuesday. I'll look for a nene or two. Hopefully some other interesting (and native) birds too.

Paula Scott said...

Doesn't it look like the goose's shadow is dancing but the goose is not? What a fun shot!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

This is a good reflection shot.

Carin said...

Hihi that shadow made me laugh! It is funny in a way, still I really like it. Nice capture!

Have a nice week!
