Wild Geese

Normally our Canada Geese appear serene, but they have been feisty lately. To me it looks like they are courting, although January seems early for this behavior. Perhaps the recent warm days make them think it's almost spring!

    1. Well, they don't belong to anyone so yes! And they act pretty wild when they feel certain instincts kick in!

  2. Good action shots!
    Have a great day!

  3. Nice to catch them in action, I swoop hoping to get a shot of them landing so many times

  4. It looks like they're raring to go.

    I was surprised some days ago to see one among the numerous ducks that spend the winter here.

  5. I know eagles mate in January...perhaps the ducks do as well.

  6. It's not so easy to catch them while living their wild life, thank you, darling Linda, your shots are always superb, indeed, terrific !

    Hope you're having the best of weeks,
    I'm sending hugs and ever much love to you,
    with utmost gratitude

    Xx Dany

  7. Oh I have so seen scenes like those Geese as well as Swans before and they do get mean, but then settle back down. Great action shot~

  8. Fun photos, the weather must be confusing them. Thank you for leaving your very sweet comment. Happy New Year!

  9. You did well to catch them like this ...
    Enjoyed all of your photo's

    All the best Jan

  10. Geese can be aggressive sometimes. Nice pictures!
