Interesting to see the goose in the picture- gives a surprise element and perspective. Wonderful shapes in the mountains. I could see this also as a pano of the mountains without the goose, starting right at the treeline. .

Like the other folks have commented, this is several very nice shots in one. I like it as is because it shows the goose living off of what it can find for food in a tough, but beautiful environment.

Another your wonderful image, :) I love the background and the subject that constitutes the point of interest.

A very nice birdscape, Diana! The goose makes the image for me!

Very neat bird/landscape.
I agree that the bird makes the image
Very minor technical nit...would love to see just a touch of color separation between the top of the bird and the snowy landscape...as is, it seems to blend into the background.

Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. I'll work on getting more contrast between the Whooper Swan's back and the snow!

Probably a better fit in the Birds Forum but a wonderful shot for sure.
