Weekend Reflections on Canada Geese



Shown above are reflections of tree trunks in the icy water, But the interesting thing about these reflections are the Canada Geese in the water in the picture shown below. Please click the photo below to get a better view of the Canada Geese in the icy water. They has better get a move on! and soon! And they were not moving very fast today. We passed this water area this morning at about 10;25 am and returned home a little after 2 p.m. this afternoon. The geese were still there! I went home to get my camera and took these pictures at about 2:30 p.m. Checking out this location tomorrow morning is high on my 'to do' list. If they are still there might they be stuck in the ice? I doubt that that sort of thing ever happens. Hopefully for their health, they will soon be on their way south.
editing note: While searching for the Canadas this morning they were nowhere to be seen. I assume they have lef the area. And the areas of open water appeared to be more closed over with ice.

nice co-o-o-l-d post. I spent my lunch today watching the Canada Geese in the Ohio River, after which I spent time taking pictures of tree reflections in our pond. You'll probably see them tomorrow, (I'm really not copying.)

Such a pretty river! We have geese here all year, they don't seem to mind the cold. I knew of a swan from someones pond that was frozen in the ice. They had to chop it out!. It was OK. They took it to a fram for the winter.

Lovely ice and geese shots. The ice looks so pretty. I love when the geese migrate and went to see the Snow Geese that here today.
