Fine Feathers/ SOOC

Coming in for a landing

This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago. The goose is making a dramatic entrance and no one is paying attention!

Actually, the four geese are more interested in the flock of geese circling the pond that's about to make their final approach on the water below.

Neat photo EG. Even with the 100's of geese around here, I never tire of seeing them.

Beautiful shot! I haven't seen any around here yet, but I can't wait until they return...it means warm weather is coming. ;o)

EG: Mighty fine capture but I still see ice on your lake. I'm done with the cold but the cold is not done with me.

What's the point of making a dramatic entrance if no one pays attention?

Jan said...

This photo reminds me of when we were living in Winthrop, Washington. The geese were in pairs and would often chase each other everywhere as to declare their nesting territories.

I think I might have told you before, my room mate's dad took me to see these geese. I never forgot, though it was more than 35 years ago.

Your geese are different from the geese we have here in Westerns Springs.

Beautiful photo.
