I approached these beautiful geese at a friend's house but they turned around in one group movement and waddled away from me.

I knelt down. Come back!

But alas, a species protects its own. And the question begs ... is humanity as wise?

This picture could be a postcard. Do you take random pictures, or do you just set out with something particular in mind? Enjoyed my visit as usual.

WhenI have watched geese their conflicts are settled quickly and with the minimum of violence.Man has forgot that mode, and then we say we are the more intelligent creature.

No, man would pick the weakest of the bunch and "throw him under the bus" while the others got away.

If only we humans were as protective of each other as this...how beautiful life would be! Carla

Geese get pretty upset if separated from their flock. Protection in numbers, I guess.

Beautiful photo, Allison. :)

They're so pretty! I've always thought geese had a sort of majestic quality to them. Too bad they're horribly cranky.

No snow for now, Ola! The chinook is blowing!
