DebHow sweet!


Voted 10/10

The Canadian geese are in our neck of the woods these days as well. Guess they're digging the warm temps in SoCal this year! :)

I'm sure they do. I took this picture on a warm day also. Unfortunately I have never seen their young. They must be nesting somewhere else.
Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you Alec. I watched them for quite a while. These two hanged out together and I was getting lots of nice but boring shots of just two geese standing around. Finally they started getting loud and even ducks showed up (definitely a couple too) by chance and it all made for a more exciting picture.
Cheers, Anya
