Greener There?

 Maybe the cattails really are greener there

Q. Why did the geese cross the road?
A. Probably for the same reason the chicken did.

exquisite shot, we often have to stop for Mama Ducks and their offspring and can have up to three or four cars behind us, patiently waiting, I think this is the only time French drivers are patient LOL.

Nice photo. Geese are rather comical, aren't they?

I used to participate in a meme that required a complete "flash-fiction" story in exactly 55 words. This is one I wrote about the real reason the chicken crossed the road:

A gal in Maine was fined $44 for stopping to let ducks cross and caused an accident. Strange one.

Terrific shot! I love how they walk along in a row like that. I am not a goose hater like some around here.

Stewart M said...

Nice picture - and it does lend itself to a few jokes.

"why did the turtle cross the road?"

"To get to the Shell station!"

Sorry for the much delayed reply - I've been in the UK for a month and I decided to let the blogging take a back seat - normal service will resume very soon!
