Old goose graces

Beautiful old Priscilla, leader of the Bottomtums her adopted flock of ducks, creature with the most fragile but strong neck - it is hard not to admire her. Holding Priscilla is also something I enjoy. When she first arrived it wasn't easy to hold her, but now, I think she actually likes it. She loves to be stroked for short periods and her neck is made up of much softer feathers than her body. Her feet are a beautiful shade of orange and do remind me in texture to a tangerine skin at times.
