photoblog image what is the goose doing?

what is the goose doing?

The goose is not drowning :) But I noticed they seem to put their heads in water briefly and come right back up, does anyone know exactly what they do with their heads underwater? I am thinking maybe cooling off or searching for something to eat but I don't know for sure.

I'm thinking the goose is fishing. But who really knows, except this goose? smile Nice shot, Dotun!
Ducks basically graze under water. I imagine geese do the same, but I don't know for sure. This is certainly an unusual perspective for an animal shot. It is good to know that water runs off their bottoms too smile
This is a mallard drake (male)and it is feeding or dabbling. Ducks come in two types...diving ducks such as merganser, eider, goldeneye and many others or dabbling ducks such as mallard, black, pintail and all the teals. This is how they eat; mostly plant material but are not adverse to small fish, insect, eggs and the like. I absolutely love the photo. Someone last week had a similar photo but it somehow missed my likey file. This one is going in.
Very funny image Dotun. Bright details, well exposed too.

HAHAHAHA, Dotun. When I first pulled this up, I was trying to make a penguin outta it--singing to the choir! grin Then I read your text and it all fell into place. I think my imagination is getting worse the older I get. grin
Fantastic Dotun... I'm trying to capture such a moment for a while.. You've done it really good !
Thats a nice one
different perspective...very lovely shot.
I shoot a lot of images like this but I never post them because I thought people no one would be interested in Duck, Goose or Swans eating habits. So for me I like this and I know what the mallard is doing, great shot bro.

Nice capture - funny.
Very amusing! It's early and I needed a chuckle this morning.
I love the humor in this shot. Great details, too, down to the tiny water droplets.
This is a wonderful shot
I love whe water drops on the feathers

I was so sure from the thumbnail that this was either a Killer Whale or a penguin! It's very cleverly done, and you've caught some wonderful detail too. Not easy when they always seem to be so quick. smile
