My obsession continues! As I have been observing and photographing the Canada Geese, it appears to me that they are in pairs. This one goose was calling and calling. All of sudden this other goose came flying in and landed in front of me. Shortly thereafter the two took off for parts unknown – at least to me.

      Re: the paparazzi, you may be on to something especially with the ducks. Whenever I am patiently waiting for the ducks to fly, nothing happens . As soon as I turn back or get the least bit distracted, they are off. The geese tend to be quite noisy – honking and all. The ducks are far more stealthy!

    I just love the water splash and all the reflections in the water. If you didn’t have this obsession I wouldn’t get to see photos of them at all! So Keep it up!Is that geese sticking its tongue out at you? How cheeky!

    Yes our geese mate for life..they also care for each others goslings in a day care kind of system. I remember being down at Lost lagoon in Stanley park once and a pair of geese were looking after about 40 little ones…very cute.
    I think I may have to take a trip to the park…there must be babies around there somewhere..

    Yup pairs, that is the only way I see the geese around here. I need to go to the bird reserve and get some photos before they all fly north.

    What a landing!! He provided a wonderful action shot.

    A great action shot, and I love the water droplets in the air. It doesn’t take much figuring to solve the problem of what they’re going to be doing.

    Great action-photo. Good that the goose is in the baack so one can imagine him/her going forward. You captured the water-splash nicely to

    We’re on the migration path here and I only ever see them in flocks, not pairs. This shot is wonderful – you captured the water and the open beak perfectly and the reflections only add to the dramatic look.

    Great action in the water, wings and that open beak!

    Nice catch! Perfect picture for the theme with the water splash and the composition.
