The Upside Down Goose

This amazing photo was taken by wildlife photographer Brian McFarlane in Strumpshaw, Norfolk, England.  The greylag goose was attempting to land on a freshwater lake on a very windy day. Turning its body upside is a move not uncommon for birds. It even has its own name, whiffling. Birds whiffle so that they may slow down and reduce their height quickly.
