While hiking in Red Rock Canyon in Colorado Springs, I noticed a few Canadian geese in the small lake on the eastern side of the park. This goose in particular was especially curious (or hoping for food) and swam near me and let me take multiple close-up photos of him. I took this photo with a Canon 6D DSLR camera and a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens.
