Photographer's Note

This very strange-looking bird lives in a manmade lagoon in my residential neighborhood. The best we can figure is that it is a cross between an albino goose and ?? - what? a chicken? a turkey? Saw it swimming one day, and it certainly did not swim like either a duck or a goose but more like a chicken walks -- head bobbing forward and back as it jerked along in the water. The neighbors say that it has been around for several years now. It is quite a loner and doesnít hang out with the other waterfowl that visit the lagoon. Itís always a special treat to see my unusual bird friend "Penelope" on my walks.

Technical: Sharpened only.
