Went for a walk after eating many leftovers and came across some geese and swans.

This one was like a real show-off.

Not much processing... crop and a bit of tweaking with the colors. I was losing the light fast and this was at 800 ISO and f1.8. Would have liked to been able to stop down slightly to increase the DOF.

Took me a sec to realize what I was looking at ;-) Actually rather like the exaggerated DOF with that direct eye contact; draws me right in.

I love how it looks as though he dipped his face in chocolate!
