Camera Critters # 100 - Canada Geese


The Canada Goose winter over in Ohio. They like some open water to enjoy. I saw these three near the horse farm.
I was able to get a fair reflection photo of the one in the stream.
Go to the main site to see a lot of other great critters.

Those are terrific photos. We have several big flocks here at the farm most of the time. We love to see them on the pond in the morning. My older girls, when they were little, figured out how they knew when to fly out. Each group went at a different time and there were leaders that would begin a particular call and waggle their heads and then in moments that group would lift off. Each group would do that until the pond was empty and the geese had gone off to the pastures for the day. Then like clock work they would return in the evening. Have a splendid day on your end of the world!

I really like your reflection shot!

Hi Tom, lovely photos of the Canada Geese. You might enjoy the book: The Geese of Beaver Bog by Bernd Heinrich! Gives a fascinating upfront and personal view of the lives of the Canada Goose. Have a great weekend, karen
