Canada Geese

On Saturday April 11,Jake and I were out looking for photo opportunities.
This is not unusual,as we do this as often as possible.
On this day we found these two Canada Geese sitting in some very icy waters.
It looks like this one is having a good stretch after a refreshing swim. And even higher on tippy toes.
Those wings need a good work-out before we can go on.
Trying to 'swim' in the ice doesn't work so well.
I guess the ice was not quite thick enough to hold his weight.
Finally they both made it to more solid ice. I enjoyed my photo op.and the geese were no worse for wear.
God's laughter is heard in the song of birds.

  12. I love that tippy toe shot :-) I'd say this was a wonderful photo opportunity. I can't believe you still have all that ice! How funny to see them try to "swim" on it.

  16. I like this series of the Canadian Geese... we have an upper lake with still ice on and it's quite amusing to watch these fellas try to swim on the ice, let alone walk on it!!
    Hugs♥
