This is one of a pair of geese that were defending the pond just inside the entrance to the NBGW. We were warned that they can be 'a bit agressive'; having owned geese in the past I am well aware of just how protective they can be of their 'personnal space'.
I was quite taken with the drops of rain forming beads of water on the gooses back.
This pic actually looks better on Black so press "L".
