Fun shots. Canadian Geese can be very aggressive about asking for hand outs.

Beautiful tones in B & W in these geese.

I had always called these beautiful fowl Canadian Geese until two of our birder friend corrected me on several occasions. Now, I call then Canada geese. Do not understand the concern, but I have given in. Canadian or Canada...either one works with me and your shots are great. genie

These fellows can be quite cheeky!

They can also be quite a nuisance when they decide
to spend time visiting en masse! I believe they are
still a protected species? He poses nicely for you!

Geese are not in the least my favourite creatures. They can be quite contronting. However, they can also be very humourous with their wing-flapping and their sudden dashes.

Dragonstar, if you love to meander through graveyards and touch old, cold headstones, you may like to visit my new meme. It is not for the faint-hearted.

Taphophile Tragics for those who love to meander through graveyards!

Thankyou for your comment on Taphophile Tragics, Dragonstar. I used to know your first name, but your email only tells me 'Mererid' and I think your name was longer/slightly different from this. Anyway, Dragonstar, thanks for the comment. It must have been wrenching to have lost a grand-daughter. I have just one grandchild at this stage, and do not expect any more. Mine is just 18 months, and a girl.

If you are moved so to do, I would welcome your occasional contribution to Taphophile Tragics. We do not have anyone from Ireland as yet, and I just bet some of those, albeit modern, gaelic cemeteries have some corkers of stories there for the telling.

All the warmest of regards ...

Hello there. Haven't dropped in for quite a long time but came across an old comment on my blog from you and thought I'd pop in. Love these photos. We have a flock hanging around the U of I campus (I moved to Illinois from Oregon... grandson moved here from England with his parents. Don't need to say more.). I think they, and the daffodils, think it's spring. Good to see you're still blogging away. Cheers...
