Weekend Reflections: Canada Geese

Dozens of Canada geese (regrettably) gather at the pond in Elizabeth Park.  They are beautiful birds, but . . . how do I say this delicately? . . . they are a bit messy.

Fly away, fly away, fly away home.

Nothing delicate about Canada geese, the look quite nice from a distance or perhaps flying overhead but up close they are very different.
Love the autumn colours of the trees.

They appear to be enjoying the view. I know what you mean about their messiness. We have quite a few who like to winter in Arizona.

Ah yes, my husband and I call them poo-makers. They can cause quite the mess on the golf course!

Great photo and a beautiful reflection as well. The fall foliage is so pretty. Nice composition with the geese in the foreground.

Such a lovely autumn sight!

Beautiful fall scene. Very few geese overwinter in Canada as it is generally too cold. Perhaps this is just a layover for the migrating flock?

Your Canadian geese are so lovely. Such a nice, serene photo. The reflections of the autumn colors in the water along with the beautiful trees in the background make for an awesome shot. Very nice!

That's breathtaking! You make me so jealous. There's nowhere in Norwich where we can get this view.
