Love all the subtle colors in the scenery. You have such beautiful watery spots in your neighborhood. What a joy to visit your posts.

Are they Canadian Geese? Which begs the question, aren't all geese in Canada, Canadian?

Jacob said...

Cute. I'm sure they are Canadian geese. I think it's against the law for other geese to cross over into Canada. Are there other geese? I'm guessing geese come in different kinds.

Lots of Canadian geese in the U.S. Our laws are less restrictive, perhaps. They sure make a mess, though!

Heh, heh!

Having a good week, I hope!

Hi again! Half-person? Non! It's a whole person and I think you might guess who it is...but he's a sneaky fellow so you can only see a bit of him. And he doesn't drink Starbucks coffee...yuck! And it's too expensive, too! And he doesn't like Starbucks as a company. Other than that... :-)

I love the variety of colors in this photo, especially the contrasts in the "weeds" and the sky.

If this does not soothe the soul, I'm not sure what will...

It's spring and the world is anxious to produce new life. This looks like a good spot to observe nature reproducing.

This is a wonderful picture, not only of the marsh, but of the sky as well.

Great photo! I think these surroundings are very beautiful. It looks a bit like the polders in my part of the country.
Thanks for your visit.

Another lovely spot from your neck of the woods. Do they have baby geese yet?

a lovely marshy place...I live in location that is covered with marshland here in Southern NH. My photo today is from one such place.

Carolyn Ford said...

I would so love to walk around that marsh! I find these areas peaceful and quiet...so nice.

Must have been wonderful to apply all senses, probably most, to breathe the air and listen to the time passing by.

Please have a nice Wednesday.

That's a lovely swamp. I haven't see a real swamp since I was very young. I miss exploring in them.
