Admiring Beauty


While strolling through Brackenridge Park, a very large inner-city park in San Antonio, TX, I came across this sweet thing.  I'm not sure of its identification.  Perhaps a White-fronted Goose hybrid?


P.S.   Apparently, what we have here is an exotic domestic, called a Chinese Goose.  Even she thinks she's worth looking at twice! 
I thank you, Mainiac, for coming to the rescue!

KaHolly- It's not a hybrid, it's an exotic domestic goose called a Chinese Goose. Maineiac

Thank you, Maineiac! I was hoping someone would know. Thanks for stopping by. While I was in San Antonia, was hoping to get down your way! But time just slipped away...~karen

No, not really....

Very pretty though and what a find!

Nice shot,

That's too funny. The goose does look as if it is admiring itself.
Ohhh...and thanks for the link in your sidebar - I need a couple of inexpensive door prizes for a workshop I'm leading. Those tissue cozies will be perfect! Not only are they handy, they are "green" too!
