I wanted to honor a friend from Canada and I thought what better way then to post an animal whose name originated in her land. Michele of The Rocky Mountain Retreat is recovering from her injury of last weekend. It was like taking away a part of our viewing pleasure when we had to miss her posts of the beautiful country of British Columbia, Canada. So here is my little way to share my high regards for her site. I'm starting out with a group of preening geese trying to clean their feathers. How many are there in this group? Count carefully. This is a pair from a small pond that swam by to show off.
Finally, here is a pair from in the Spring from the same pond with a few youngsters in tow.
I'm so glad Michele is again able to show us her amazing land.
