Goose at Pitsford Reservoir

This is a fantastic specimen of a Goose, the image was taken at Pitsford Reservoir, clearly the question of colour does not contribute to my statement ..... or does it ?

The pure clinical white colour of its plumage is, to me, magical in its simplicity. 

But what really attracted me to this bird was the intensity of its pale blue eyes which I have cropped heavily in the image below.

So, apart from the imposing physical presence of this bird it is the composition of three colours that draws me to it, white, pale blue and the orange of its eye ring, bill and webbed feet, three elements that pull the visual impact of the bird together IMHO.    

What an imposing bird.
