Chinese geese (a.k.a. swan geese; Anser cygnoides) inhabit White Rock Lake throughout the year. I’ve mentioned them repeatedly.
I even tried once to explain the “swan goose” nickname of this species. Those images elicited swan-like memories and thoughts, and yet something remained amiss, unfinished even.
Today, however, I captured some photos that offered a new perspective on these large birds. Upon review, I found myself entranced by their beauty, their stunning grace in the water.
That’s when it all made sense.
[American coots (Fulica americana) can be seen in some of the images; also note I’ve increased the default image size to 1600×1200 when possible; yet another reintroduction via the new camera]
