Isn’t it amazing how they know.

I think its amazing, Beverly, how after eating just scraps they have all that energy to actually do it!
I love watching flocks of birds in flight. It’s like an aerial ballet.
Indeed it is, Raili! And when a gaggle of geese fly over, calling to each other, its like a musical one!
I love to hear them as they fly over.
They sound as though they are deep in conversation, Eugenia. I wonder if they keep it up the whole journey?
Hmmm, good question. They are always deep in conversation when they fly over our area.
I think they just like talking! 😀
Oh, yeah; we’re seeing the Vs big time, these days.
And they still fly, Ron.!
Heavens! Literally 🙂 🙂 Very restrained, Tom. Happy Saturday!
Happy Saturday for last week, Jo! I’m getting worse!
I’m being good these days…
You are, Tom! This week too 🙂
My Inner Rebel is starting to get tetchy…
Wish I had the money to escape England’s winter!!! 🙂
It isn’t that bad when you wrap up, Prenin! And have plenty of towels for the rain! 😉
That isn’t what worries me – we had a guy with a long white beard around earlier complaining about the price of gopher wood… 😉
Eek! And since then we’ve had a hurricane call by!
Here in Ontario Canada we only see them fly away in October & some years November. Seeing them early this year means winter will be early. I bought my snowshoes already so I’m ready for my winter Spirit Walks and of course taking pictures. 😉 I love Canadian Geese they make me smile each time. Whenever I take pictures up close when they are on the ground they always walk away from me. Observing their behavior always gives me a Aha moment!
They are fascinating creatures, Diane. The ones that visit the Lake are human friendly, so will come over to say hello and would gladly take a bite to eat from out of the hand. They are less likely when they have little ones, but they still interact. And yes, they are very relaxing.
Interesting! What kind of food? I would love to take pictures up close.
These here will have a go at anything… eating a sandwich? One will approach and try to try a bit for itself!
One must’ve thought I looked a little edible once… it slowly walked over to me and tried to peck my hand… I’m wondering now if it thought I had something for it (which I didn’t at the time!). They are lovely up close though… although a little unnerving when in pecking mood! 😀
Their not scared to get up close but I guess it can be annoying.
When they do it individually it’s quite nice… but they are usually in groups, which can get just a little intimidating.
I guess. 🙂
Beautiful photograph Tom. Is it one you took?
It is indeed, Cobs… on the ole Mobile Phone. I heard them before I saw them, so I was ready! 😀
Right place, right time. Great shot. Well done 😀
Thanks, Cobs… I seem to be finding myself there quite a bit lately! 😀
Oh, it was tweaked a little on the mobile as well. I forgot to mention that just now…! 🙂
I wish I was joining them but we have not got our heads around our Winter escape this year
You’ll be sorted soon, hopefully, Becky!
We are – date decided but not off til January!
That will soon be here – we’re nearly in November now! 😯
