While I was kayaking with my son Michael on Simpson Lake, we observed a Ross's Goose in the water about 200 feet from the boat ramp.  We slowly paddled to the goose, and we were able to get great looks.  The last photo that I took was from about twenty feet, and then the goose took to flight and flew across to the East side of the lake.
