goose at Naumai Park, Hawera

By the time we got to the parks in Hawera this weekend, there was bread floating everywhere, so the ducks and geese were not very interested in us. [If you feel moved to tell me how bad bread is for birds, please don't.]
Well, except for this one lone goose at the smaller park, Naumai Park. He/she seemed to have a slight neurological problem but was quite happy to have some  human companionship, becoming silent and attentive when we got close, even posing for the camera. Hubby named him Ryan. Ryan (Wasa) Gosling.



I was pleasantly surprised at the reflection in the shot below, as the water was not pretty after lots of rain.

Great photos of the goose :-). We have a lot of those here in Canada too, hehehe... I love watching them on my daily walks along the lake.. Frozen in Time | Pompeii

Very nice looking goose. - We've fed bread to ducks and geese for years, hasn't seem to hurt them that I've noticed.
