Rose's daughter came to me, about 2 1/2 hours ago, breathlessly 
announcing that there were two unusual geese down at Maggs Park.

Naturally, Telyt in hand, I had to investigate... and they turned out 
to be Bar Headed Geese.

At first I thought that meant they came from Barhead, Alberta, but I 
discovered that they are native to Central Asia, flying over the 
Himalayas to winter in India &  Burma.  How they came to be in Logan 
Lake is a mystery to me!

They're nasty fellas, though... If the normally tough Canada Geese, 
with whom they're hanging out, get too close, the Bar Heads nip at 
the Canuck Honkers and the Canada Geese jump right out of their way!

My first decent shot is shown here... though the highlights are blown 
in the .jpg, they are not so in the .tif and .dng files.  I'll try to 
do better, when I have more time, tomorrow.  I may add one or two 
more shots, at that time, as well.

Comments, good or bad, appreciated, as always.
