Love these shots, Karen!

Spring is here, but the rain took over this entire week..

Ms. Becky said...

I think these are wonderful captures of geese. They are really active now - flying and strutting, following their lady friends around - it's really fun to watch. When I drive past the pond near my house there's a show every day, usually stopping traffic. The last shot is my favorite. Happy weekend to you Karen.

Rambling Woods said...

yes they are... smart too...Michelle

Me said...
