Friendly Goose

I went out for a walk this morning with a lovely woman. We strolled down to Granville Island and explored around the perimeter. As we were almost off the island we came across this Canada Goose, standing by himself. I'm not sure if he was lost or just taking a break from the flock, but when I stopped to take his photo, he decided to waddle over toward us.
Maybe he was looking for food or maybe he just wanted to show off his magnificence, but I appreciated his cooperation. I'm using the pronoun "he" quite loosely of course. If you know how to distinguish between a male and female goose then please let me know!

Apparently the male is the one on top.

And a male is a gander, btw.
