I shot this photo at a lake near Leavenworth, KS. It was an early morning and the fog was so thick you could hardly see your own feet.
I was walking around the shore of the lake when I spotted the goose. I held my camera at the ready and moved in closer. Very, very slowly, so I would not chase it away. Finally I was crouching in the wet grass to reach my designated shooting position.
I had the idea of the photo in my mind and was hoping that the goose would play along.
When I reached my position I hunkered down, and didn't move anymore.
The goose walked back and forth in the shallow water. After about 15 minutes it approached the log. Finally it had arrived at the position where I wanted it, but it looked in the wrong direction.
It almost started moving to leave the log again, when something caught its attention. It turned its head, and for a few seconds I had the chance to take the shoot that I wanted. And I took it.
