Lesser white-fronted goose.

With a plump body, long neck, and wings that extend beyond the tip of the tail, the lesser white-fronted goose (Anser erythropus) is distinguishable from other geese by its brightly yellow eye-ring, round head and small, bright pink bill. ( Fact file from arkive.org).

Classified a Vulnerable (VU) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix I and II of the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS) this goose species is one of my wish list to photograph in the wild.

I am so happy and speechless to see them for the first time, even in the zoo (Inokashira Park Zoo ). It was the most beautiful goose species that I have seen so far.
