Canada goose in descending flight.

A Canada goose descending with cupped wings.  I don't often get nice shots of the geese, mostly because I don't have any goose decoys.  I see them fairly often but not in the same numbers as the ducks.  This goose came in just before sunset with its mate.  I got a couple shots of the pair when they were further out but when they got closer I had to choose one to follow.  The two were not close enough to each other to keep them in the same photo.
Their approach is much more deliberate and predictable than that of the ducks so it is easier to track them.  Plus, they are big targets!
