Geese on the Pond



A pair of Canadian Geese who seemed the dominant residents at a small water retention pond, although a solitary Great Blue Heron and pair of Mallard ducks were present. This pair stayed close together and kept a close eye on me. The reference was a photo I took in the early spring, so it'll be interesting to go back and see who's there now. 

Done for the Daily Paintworks "critter" challenge. Just a little behind on those!

    1. Thank you Azra! We have a large group with goslings on a bigger pond near us, but I didn't see this pair at the little pond this week. Maybe it was a little too small!

  3. I really, really like this one. Great job on the reflections and ripples but after just seeing Canadian geese in Wichita, my heart just loved this pair.
