Ice is Nice for Canada Geese

Black and White and also Wild Bird Wednesday


These geese prefer the ice to the cold water. I've noticed they take their naps near the edge of the water, perhaps so they can promptly swim away if a predator draws near.

I converted the first images to black and white in Photoshop. The third photo is still in color, but as you can see the colors are fairly subtle.

You'll notice I like taking pictures of geese stretching their wings. Typically one does it and then another one follows suit. Then they all settle down for a little while.

  6. Geese are so beautiful Linda... but stinky, stinky when they take over your lawn. I could look at them for hours as long as they stay off my place.
