Day 116: Canada Geese

Day 116: Canada Geese, originally uploaded by susanvg.

Geese honking overhead, heading north. We see great vees passing over and wonder at their tenacity and strength. They know what teamwork is, the vees changing shape as leaders change to give each a chance at riding the currents of the one before. Driving in the country we passed fields where the geese had stopped to rest and feed.

So much I don't understand about how the birds know their routes and travel so far. So much to wonder at.

Below is part of a flock we saw a couple of days ago - this is a back vee, part of a much larger flock. I love the sound as they go overhead.

Going North

  1. Great captures! I too have been seeing the big V's in the sky heading north, but have not had my camera handy. And yes, what a wonderful sound those V's make overhead!
