More Geese

Than you can shake a stick at! We tried to get through town without any trouble but were soon surrounded.

It would be down right dangerous to have any corn in your pockets.

Silver Wings

I went for a bike ride in search of more geese and found the Mother of all flocks.

They sure are something to behold when they all take to the air and what a racket!

Passing Through

Lot's of geese in our area this weekend making their way back north.
I did manage to get close enough to this bunch to capture them as they were feeding.

Had to stay real low and use the grass in the foreground as cover.
Different groups were coming and going and I managed these shots on the fly.

It's a nice clear day as you can see by the blue sky background!

Happy Easter

After church we had lunch then took a ride, it was sunny but still a cold 25 degrees.

These weary travelers on their journey back north, stopped for a rest on this shelf of ice.

Many had their heads tucked into their feathers to avoid the sharp wind and maybe catch up on some beauty sleep.

We are seeing some robins and the geese are moving through, everything is ready for spring except the weather!

Ice Storm

We dodged the bullet on this one, the ice covered the trees and power lines but we did not lose power here.

When the sun hits the ice just right it lights up like diamond"s. We saw more people out taking pictures in the last two days then we have all year.
