This gallery contains 3 photos. Did you know that blue geese dream? Well, these ones do–they’re the blue morph mutation of snow geese, with blue/grey on their wings. Photographed at the Greater Vancouver Zoo on September 14.
I like how the light naturally fell on these two and lent a somnabulatory ambience to the photo. These were not the least bit disturbed to have cameras poking in their faces. Which is a rarity for snow geese — they really, really like to keep their personal space to a minimum of a few hundred square feet.
Not everyone was dreaming … this snow goose (without the coloured wings) was keeping watch. It kinda broke the spell for me.
