West Seattle wildlife: Bird’s-eye view of well-known goose

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!)

    Love those two geese. Beauty + personality + resourcefulness. I never noticed the blue eyes -what a marvelous photo! Remember, please, please keep your dogs away from them.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful, beautiful photograph!
    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!!
