Encounter with Goose

This goose was standing ahead of me as I walked along the path at our local nature center. I thought I'd push my luck and sit down right in front of him (8 or so feet away) and try to draw his or her portrait. Well, this kind bird sat virtually still for 40 minutes! Long enough for me to draw him (or her) in ink and then add color with watercolors. Thanks, pal.
