I took this photo back in July of this year. I was out for a walk along the water front trail, and I came across some Canada Geese. This one got my attention and I was close enough that I could have touch him. I would never attempt to do that. I have a great admiration, and respect for these Beautiful Water Fowl. There are those who don’t share my love for these birds and think they are a nuisance. I understand their reasons but I don’t share their view. I wonder if sometimes Canada Geese think we are a nuisance and get in their way. :) Just a thought! I really think this planet is big enough for all of us to share, and show each other a little Grace.
I love watching and listening to the geese as they fly in formation this time of year, as they prepare to fly south for the winter. They haven’t left yet, but they are practicing and training their young ones for the journey ahead.
Yes, there is a change in the air as we also prepare for a new season that is on our doorstep. We have a few more days of summer so enjoy them, and for all those who are looking forward to the long weekend, Have a good one.
Happy September one and all.
Love and Care
Do I see little tiny teeth? I just love that white chin strap! Great detail!ReplyDelete
I love the geese too... They are God's creatures as well. I don't much care for the people who call them nuisances either. My bad I know.ReplyDelete
I can for sure feel the change of the seasons. It was about 30-40 degrees cooler today then it has been. I haven't really seen the Canadian geese flying in V formation but I know it won't be long at this rate. They flock around and leave a terrible mess in the golf course...but I don't play golf so I don't get as irritated as some people do!ReplyDelete
Anita, One characteristic of all living birds is the lack of teeth. However, some birds have serrations on the edges of their bills which are sort-of tooth-like.ReplyDelete
Many geese do have these serrations to help them bite off the grass that they eat.
I agree with your words. I love nature so it is. It is nonsense to criticize her something. We are a part of it. Beautiful photo. Nice Friday! Peter.ReplyDelete
Thank you Anita, Liz and Joe for stopping by and leaving your comments. I will come by to visit you soon, but for now I need to get my beauty sleep.:) Have a wonderful night and God Bless you.ReplyDelete
xoxo Dianne :)
Thank you Peter. :)ReplyDelete
I like birds. Nice Pic!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shot Dianne I to love to watch these birds fly in formation as they set off to the South , I am glad we share the World with these beautiful creatures. Have a lovely weekend hope you get the time to catch more beautiful sights of what nature has in store for us. Sheila and Wile-e xReplyDelete
Dianne, what beautiful shots. I love seeing the serrations that I call their "teeth". When I showed such a thing in my MSN blog and called them teeth, I got comments about not knowing they had teeth. I have since learned to keep my little descriptive thoughts to myself. :-)))ReplyDelete
I LOVE them in your flying overead shot. I got one at dawn one morning here at the house out on the deck...rosey sky, azure blue streaks..them in sharp relief against all that with their dark seeming bodies and lo! Blurry. Broke my heart!!
Hope the babies are well and thriving as I'm sure they are. Kisses and gentle hugs to them. Hugs to you and Steve. xxoo
My back yard is filled with Canadian geese this time of year in the early morning hours. They are beautiful to watch, but rather nasty. However, you are right, there is room here for us all and I do enjoy watching them.ReplyDelete
That is a great portrait. I too love the geese and get a thrill when I see them flying in huge flocks.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I like to hear the Canadian Geese, as they sometimes fly overhead here in England.
Hugs across the big pond - Nita
Nice close up. Have a great weekend. God bless.ReplyDelete
I never known that Canadian Geese though are we have an Australian Geese? that make me something to find out:-)ReplyDelete
Your photos are beautiful wonderfully photographed!
Have a good week ahead.
Nice picture Dianne!ReplyDelete
We all have to share this planet with the animals, they are just doing what it takes to survive..
Dianne, He is beautiful. Love the detail and just look at the color. I had no idea they were flying information like that down there. They arent here yet , its too early I think. Crains went over yesterday but were so high up.ReplyDelete
Fantastic photography as always. Love your view.

Thank you all so very much for your comments, and I wish you all a wonderful and inspiring week ahead. xoxo Dianne :)ReplyDelete
Thank you also for giving me the Sunshine Award Poppy. I am honored that you thought of me for this award. God Bless You for kindness.ReplyDelete
Diane I share your comments on the route of the geese. Such a lovely sound to wake up to for me each morning. I hear them over our home each morning now.ReplyDelete
I agree with your views on all levels of the seasons and how the animals tell us what is happening. Flight now tells us summer is ending. Your photographs are always incredible. Such detail, light, color, it is a delight to follow your blog.
Wow Diane that is getting really close. The geese haven't started moving in our area yet. Had our last barbecue this weekend the ended my summer of gatherings here. I am so looking forward to days of piece a quiet and getting back to a normal routine. Hope you are having a wonderful summers end. Hugs CarrieReplyDelete
Oh I also love your new header with the dragon fly. Great detail.ReplyDelete
Hello & congrats on your award as well. :-)ReplyDelete
A new season is on it's way, cheers!
The Canada Geese are superb, and, flying in a v shaped.ReplyDelete
Hi Dianne, I agree with you, there is room for all of God's Creations. I hear on our local radio station today that a debate is brewing about whether or not people should be shooting Magpies. Oh my, they are beautiful birds. Like any parent, they defend and protect their babies. I hope that people won't start or be allowed to shoot them. Hope your day brings you joy and goodness. All God's Best, Kerrie xOxReplyDelete
Dianne , Thank you so much for stopping , your kind words and thoughts are always nice to read.ReplyDelete
Good luck tomorrow. Have fun and dont over work your self. :) Pack light and enjoy.
Thinking about you.
Beautiful post Dianne as you may remember I was lucky enough to have a family in my Pond one summer, the baby goslings were so pretty. I just love them flying in formation it gives me a wonderful feeling of peace. Hugs Sheila and Wile-e have a lovely Sunday.ReplyDelete
