While I was out for my daily hike, I took this series of shots of a Canadian goose. They are really bad shots, I was shooting with the goose between me and the sun, so you’ll have to overlook that aspect of the photos. But what happened was too good not to post, I hope you agree.
Actually, I shot these without thinking, or I wouldn’t have even raised the camera. I walked up to one of the ponds, and startled the geese of which this one was part of the flock. I just pulled the camera up and started shooting, and why I zoomed in on this one I have no idea, but I’m glad I did.
The goose didn’t fly very far, but it had quite a head of steam going when it landed.
You can see how far it was sliding by the tracks left on the ice.
Wildlife is usually so graceful in their movements that this series is a lot of fun for me. It’s nice to know that even a bird as graceful as a Canadian goose is sometimes as big a klutz as I am.
My hot streak as far as getting some great photos continues, I have a bunch more to sort through before I post them. I can even tell you what color a robin’s tongue is from some of the other shots I got today. If you already know what color a robin’s tongue is, please don’t spoil it for the rest of the readers here, it took me 56 years to learn that. I’m sure there are a few others that don’t yet either.
That’s it for this one, thanks for stopping by!
