Looks like they hail from where I do!
Nice photo Pat- Did you feed them any bread?

'Tsuki said...

I like the way you used your flash on this particular shot : it allows such a great color reflection of the sky behind those gooses...

Francisca said...

Funny, Pat, I was just looking at a series of geese photos I have, but none of them grabbed me the way this one does. The geese have character and the sky reflection adds so much.

Lynne H. said...

We used to have alot of ducks and geese in this pond (behind my old home)..I miss them...
this picture reminded me of just how cute they are... Great shot!!!

Pam said...

They seem to be stalking you while you shot them.
Nice reflection, Pat.

Fabien said...

Very nice capture

Dawn said...

I always get a kick out of how these guys walk...er...I mean waddle.
You're very brave to get such a close shot...I would have run by now.
They like to hiss at me for some reason....
Hope you have a great weekend!

Joe Cap said...

Very nice, Mr. Pat!
But watch out...them thar Geeses can be mean if you get to close. Did you know they can inflict serious damage to your self by just giving you a good whack with their wings? And...they bite...

What a true outdoorsman...putting yourself and bodily harm all for the sake of nature!

Toni said...

Drove past a field the other day that was covered with these feathered friends. I love the picture.

Marlene said...

HONK if you like Pat's photos!

HONK! HONK!

(sorry....you just knew I had to!)

Nat said...

Very nice shot...that goose looks quite haughty!

Georgina Dollface said...

Yay! They made itsafely! (They were supposed to call me when they got there.) Have fun with dodging goose poop for the next few months! - G

Sharon Wagner said...

We can all reflect on how much we love or hate geese. I love to have them around.

Ann Best said...

I love this photograph. I love coming in to see all of your photographs. I really like your neighborhood nicknames list!

I had to sign in again as a follower because a glitch in blogger last week forced me to delete/export my old blog and start a new one. But they don't export the followers.

So here I am again. I hope you'll come over and re-follow me too! I always enjoy your comments.

Great picture!! I love that sky and the irony of how it looks like the geese could walk on it!! Soon they will be, perhaps!! Take care, Cat

Betty Manousos @ CUT AND DRY said...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That one in the middle is eyeing you!

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

Great shots, Pat. I love the contrasting colors. xo

I love ducks! Nay, geese.

Jimmy said...

Amazing shot, it looks like they are almost posing for you, I do like the reflections of the clouds

tapirgal said...

Oh, geese. I love them. Love the chewing-gum clouds on that water, too.

Cheeseboy said...

Looks a whole lot more calm than my insane weekend.

Pat Tillett said...

Cat - thanks! I agree! I couldn't believe the reflection when I first saw it.

Betty - thanks Betty!

Alex - I was truly afraid he was going to charge me...

Robyn - thanks Robyn!

Clarissa - Me too, but I prefer the ducks, they don't usually attack you!

Jimmy - They were barely able to hold a pose. I had no food for them and they didn't seem too hapy about it!

tapirgal - Thanks! I lucky that this place is right down the street from my house.

Cheeseboy - That's not good! Maybe you can relax at work...

Warren Zoell said...

Ah yes Canada Geese. So that's where those obnoxious birds go in the winter.

Jayne said...

Love the reflection of the landscape in the far distance - we can sort of glimpse your surroundings, but not quite!

AB said...

The guy in the front looks like he is coming to have a word with the photographer

Living In Williamsburg Virginia said...

Beautiful shot with great reflection. Looks like a great place to relax.

Darryl and Ruth : )

Penny said...

I love these guys!! We have a similiar pond in So. Maryland and I always bring them snacks. :)

Sarah said...

I'm glad to see that our Bernaches du Canada arrived safely in your neighbourhood :P (do you live down south?)

SquirrelQueen said...

Great reflection Pat. Canada geese are such fun to watch but this group seems to be watching you. I think their leader wants a closer look at your camera.

James said...

Wow! What an excellent shot! I'm glad I saw it.

Pat Tillett said...

Warren - Yep! We get a lot of them here. I haven't been down to the lake for a few weeks, but I bet there's a lot of them here now.

Jayne - Thanks! We want to remain a mystery!

AB - He was a bit aggressive! But that's okay...

D&R - thanks so much! It's Just a short walk from our house and it is indeed relaxing...

Penny - I love them also! If you even think the word snack around there, you have about a hundred big birds attacking....

Sarah - I do live down south, and yes they are here!

SQ - Thanks! They can sure get agressive. Especially so if they think you have food...

James - Thanks James! It's at lake Laguna Niguel. You've probably been there, right?
