In the looking glass

This goose seems to be admiring its reflection. It’s mating season; perhaps it thinks it’s scoping out a potential hot date. Of course, it could also be watching for some hors d’oeuvres to come floating by.

It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.
~Oscar Wilde

On a final note: Check out the YouTube Symphony Orchestra. It is inspirational and totally awesome! They performed last night at Carnegie Hall.

What a serene scene. Maybe the goose is about to check his beak for bits of cattail before he meets his hot date! Interesting Wilde quote too. Thanks for the YouTube link - I just read about this performance today, and now I can watch part of it. What a crazy concept!

We watched part one of the YouTube concert last night and I see that part two has been posted; we'll catch that this weekend.
It's a cool concept with great results. Hope you enjoy it too.
