Standing His Ground

Like most geese, this dude was not going to move. We were just walking by, and he wanted to defend his space. I didn’t see anything that he would be protecting, other than his space. So, we did our best to respect him, and move on. :)

Geese flyover

This past Sunday morning, we hiked in the snow. The snow had stopped, but these geese had to check it all out. There is something cool about how geese fly. Generally they are messy birds, but grace is not something they lack when flying.

Spring goose

I really love these photos. Several mornings last week I took a photo walks shortly after sunrise. It was cold every time. On this day, I saw two geese, slowly floating, or swimming if you will. I took a couple photos of them, then suddenly they took off. I focused my camera on the lead goose and captured several photos as they ‘honked’ and flew away. These are the two best shots. Enjoy.

Follow the lead goose ...

There is something special about the way geese fly and swim ... it’s the ‘formations’ that captivates me. I have so many video clips of geese flying. Some may think I’m a little crazy. Every once and a while you will see one or even a few of them start to get off course, and they will make a correction. Their flight seems so intentional and purposeful.  These three geese seemed to have their own destination - they are on the way to someplace.  

By the way, although they are noisy, and often make a mess (they leave a trail wherever they go), they are graceful.
