It was a nice enough day that I felt like going somewhere but I am still getting over a cold so I decided to head over to Gallup Park in Ann Arbor. I went over to my usual spot in the park and there were a bunch of geese, ducks and swans hanging around.
I was surprised how close they let me approach, so I was able to get close up shots of their heads. Normally they are hissing and chasing me away.
A Canadian Goose near the water.
I'm not sure what kind of bird this is, I think it may be some kind of duck but I'm not sure. Could be a goose too. If someone can correctly identify it for me, a picture will be on it's way.
Another close up of a Canadian Goose.
A closeup of a swan. I love the look of these birds. And for these I take away what I said above because one of these started to hiss and bite at me.
The swan in the water.
A female mallard. This one was laying down for a long time until a couple males decided to court her.
Another swan close up. I think this is a young swan because his beak isn't quite orange yet.
Another closeup of the same swan.
A closeup of the whatever bird.
Another shot of the goose.
A male mallard. I never realized thier heads were green but they can also be blue depending on the angle of the light.
A close up of the mallard's head. Notice the bits of blue.
And the mallard swimming away.
