We live very near a huge lake - Lake Whatcom. It is right in the middle of town and extends miles up into the woods. There are parks along the lake, and many houses. We drive past the lake, sometimes several times a day, and I always look for an opportunity to get more photos of it.
Early one morning - I could see the Canada Geese on the logs that separate the swimming area from the boating area. Quick, park the car (there is no place to park by the geese, and traffic is heavy all day at this location), get out of car, gather camera and tripod, wait for traffic, across the street, find the best location - ok - Canada Geese.
Some of these geese will migrate south - some will stay for the winter. I wonder how they decide?
Some days the water of Lake Whatcom, just a few blocks from our house is still and flat, this day there was a little wind to ripple the water
Most of the geese were sleeping
Some were tending to their feathers
With the sun coming up behind the geese, I got good silhouettes of them
Is he the guard?
Someday I'd like to stay long enough to watch them all get into the water- that would be exciting!!! I'll take a lawn chair!
