Cut My Bill In Half


Notice the goose on the right. I'm not sure how it would survive that way, but obviously it has so far. (Click to enlarge.)

oh yes, a little alarming for sure but definately looks like one healthy bird; glad it is, and flying high with a partner too, excellent. Excellent photography as well capturing them in flight like that.

I wonder if it was born that way or was injured by something or possibly someone. With its lower bill longer it can scoop-up its food.

Beautiful in flight capture, BJL.
Have a great weekend.

Beautiful! It's not everyday you get a photo opportunity like this one, nice job!

Awesome photo, I guess the poor thing is managing to eat with its bill like that. Great captures!

Nature is so adaptable. This is a fabulous example. :)

Animals are much more adaptable than we are, I think. And they don't complain. Two things we could learn. He looks none the worse for it. More power to him.

Oh yeah, had a girl friend like that once, had a Lil whistle when she talked but did just fine. Lol

Great images Brian you have a sharp eye to spot the damaged bill..

Saun said...

Beautiful shots looks healthy I too wonder if it was born that way.

Joe said...

It still looks pretty healthy even with half a bill.
