Awakening

Posted by Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 7 February 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

The same Goose (Branta canadensis) as yersterdays picture. After about 15 minutes she (or he ?) woke up, looking with one sleepy eye to a strange man with a camera as if asking: "what are you doing there ? Never seen a sleeping Goose ?" - Oh yes - i did, but never this close!!!

@KriKridesign: I think you've got a good argument ! Personally i think yesterdays was a little more sharp too. I wanted to try to setup a series of 3 - so this is nr 2 - Tomorrow the finishing picture. I hope the series tells more then the individual pictures. Maybe i should try to frame them in one but i'm not that scilled with photoshop.
