After trying most of the week to find some kind of non-domesticated animal for the wildlife challenge, I finally made it to the local park. Unfortunatly, the ducks and geese weren't cooperating and wanted to stay on the opposite side of the pond from me. Several attempts later this was my best shot out of 140 or so taken.

Winter here in NJ makes it quite a challenge to find animals out and about and willing to be photographed.
