These shots (not very clear, due to distance) were taken last friday evening. Living in Nebraska, we are in the flyway zone for many migratory birds. These are snow and blue geese headed to the tundra where they will mate and nest for the summer. I am guessing there were 5-6 thousand birds swirling above this cornfield where they spent the night. I just wonder who the "head" goose is and how they decide where they will spend down time. Watching them come in for a landing was really a site to behold and the goose chatter was deafening even at 1/4 mile away....I wonder how they avoid landing on one another or crashing. I mean there has to be at least one uncoordinated goose don't ya think!?!?!!?
the arrival of 1000's of geese
2 pair and a spare :)
I wish I had sound so you could have heard the chatter.
In between work and my wednesday evening commitment I had a few moments and popped into my local hobby store and found this darling little garden fairy. She was just sitting on the shelf waiting for me. I was actually looking for a garden/travel gnome, but this little face spoke to me...yearning for me to take her home and find a special place in my world for her to explore. She had a plan or better yet, I think God had a plan.
As I sat at the computer I glanced at her and the lighting was perfect.
Out came the camera,it was fascinating to see world in a whole different way.
The sunrise--what a gift!!
To reflect upon the remaining snow.
What was she seeing in me???
What fun....I sometimes envy those with 2 legged kids and what joy
