While volunteering for Seal Sitters in the Lincoln Park vicinity recently, Alki-based photographer David Hutchinson got a close-up look at the famous white geese who live in the area. (They’ve been discussed on WSB before, but never with such a striking photo – thanks!)

    I’ve been associated w/these two ‘plucky’ geese since they first hatched, and have tried many times to capture those stunning blue eyes on white feather background …
    WELL DONE!!
