The Devil's Goose?

I don't know about you but I think that this goose that we fed yesterday looks a bit suspicious with his butter wouldn't melt blue eyes, his sharp fang like teeth and his orange eyeliner. Even though he is bordering on evil I am using him as my Show Of Sunday picture.



Just a quick post from me this morning as I am in the middle of making a picnic of homemade tomato soup and fruit for us to take with us when we go geocaching today.

It looks ever so slightly possessed.....

Fab pic but I agree with Suzy - defo possessed. I'd check around the house for feathers - make sure it hasn't followed you home!

I second Amanda's sentiment .... very brave of you to get so up close and personal with the fanged one .... or did you zoom in?

I never knew that they had teeth like that - ouch! Great photo, the focus is spot on and love the use of thirds.

Geese kind of scare me. Actually any big bird kind of scares me. It all goes back to being a child and seeing another little girl stick her finger through a fence at the zoo and watching how a huge old ostriche came over and nipped her. I do love how the background behind the goose is black - stunning.
