A couple of Egyptian Geese (Alopochen aegyptiacus) in Lake Panic in Kruger at sunrise. I was shooting hippo silhouettes in the distance when these to birds appeared in my viewfinder. They made a perfect image silhouetted against the sunrise steam in the background. This is a member of the duck, goose and swan family Anatidae. Egyptian geese were considered sacred by the ancient Egyptians, and appeared in much of their artwork.
