  1. Oh, this is so nice.

  2. Great photo! We usually have up to 50 gees at a time on our pond, but not that many came this spring. We have had a lot of Blue Winged Teal, though. The cows don’t really like the geese because they make so much noise.

  3. Beautiful reflection in the water.

  4. Bachelors without the empty pizza boxes – who knew such a thing existed?

    A perfect shot Eliza! I love the reflections and the scene is idyllic.

      Thank you, Dor. I wish I was present enough to see that I cut the head off the goose reflection, but it moved off right after I snapped the shot, so there wasn’t a second chance. Live and learn. 🙂

    Lovely, peaceful image. I can appreciate geese now that I don’t have to chase them away from our pond. In Ohio, we had a harassment campaign every spring. Otherwise, the two geese who originally came for a visit would invite about 50-100 of their friends and family to live with them, and that would not have been good for the pond. Too many nutrients (which would cause algae blooms).

  9. What a joy to see water, and not ice, in your photo, Eliza! This mean life is returning to normal in your garden? They won’t be bachelors for much longer 😉 Giant hugs, WG

      With the temps in the 80s, it got warm all of a sudden, everything is popping like mad. Everyone goes around exclaiming about the weather! After the winter we had, we’re all pinching ourselves, wondering if it is really real! Hallelujah!

    Such a peaceful image. I realize some people don;t like the Canada Geese but they sure are pretty to look at.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I agree – they aren’t just all loud, pooping machines that take down airplanes! 😉 They have their good points such as they’re devoted mates and excellent parents. Humans could take a page from their book!
