This is the same goose that I used in my second challenge attempt, it always attracts attention at the park.

The goose looks like it's doing the twist because of the way the feathers grow, but it's just walking.

For those concerned, this goose does not seem to suffer from this birth defect. It behaves like all the other geese at the park. It doesn't even walk around saying "woe is me" ;)

This goose is wild but stays at the park lake because lots of people feed them.

The pose is actually the goose just walking and looking on the ground for food to eat.

I liked this pose from all the others because it appears to be dancing the twist.

Thanks for all the comments.

The title doesn't work at all. The pic itself is funny and meets the chalange.
Don't like the "thing" in the right hend corner ( but my guess is - that it was unavoidable )You could take this shot now or never. If it wasn't like this then ... :)

Nice composition and contrast. Be great if the one foot weren't blurred.

Really? I wouldn't have it for Thanksgiving, if I were you. It may not be the only birth defect... ;o)

Very good exposure on a tough subject. White is always difficult, especially on dark background.

Poor little guy. Really fits the challenge nicely, though Mother Nature's sense of humor can sometimes be cruel apparently. Nice pose, the little bit of motion blurr fits the picture and you framed it nicely with more space in front of the goose.

"Do a little dance, to a little shake..." very cute, good expression and capture of an oddly moving subject. Nice.
