Gaggle of Geese

August 17, 2012

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

Gaggle of Canada Geese which kept appearing and disappearing outside my home

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.

    • They are haunting me Nicky. Every day they are out there, lurking – all 30 of them. Fascinating to watch but so very messy!
