Gaggle of Geese
Such a funny week. Three times I spotted a gaggle of Canada geese under my window and near the bus stop, but by the time I managed to get my camera, they had gone.
I started thinking I was imagining them. Yesterday I managed to spot them and get my camera and take some shots of them. About 30 in total, wandering around pecking at the grass and eating the plants. They’ve left a terrible ‘mess’ on the ground where they were which isn’t too nice!
I took some photos, but I’m not happy with them as they are a bit out of focus and can only think that the light – very cloudy white sky – was too intense. I had to take the photos from high up and facing a wide white sky.
Here are the photos – I hope you can see beyond the focus issue. I have not seen them since so I’m glad I
took them when the opportunity arose regardless of the quality. Such an awesome sight.
There was a leader – he stood apart and watched the others and when he got bored he moved off and they all fell into line behind him, two by two…..wonder where they live.
