Greater White Fronted Goose

While on our way back across the causeway from Antelope Island, my friend Rob and I came across a bunch of photographers that had stopped along the side of the road.  Of course, we had to see what all the commotion was about.  As we got up to the crowd, we saw that they were taking pictures of a goose.  This goose looked just like the geese that the farmer across the street had when I was a kid.  As we were standing there scratching our heads, wondering why in the world this was so exciting, a lady came over and asked if we would like to know what was so special about this particular goose.  Apparently this was a Greater White Fronted Goose and they are rarely found in Utah, and never up this close.  So here you have it, a Greater White Fronted Goose.  Oh, she also said that this was a juvenile.

Images were created with the Canon 7D and the Canon 400mm f/2.8L IS lens.
