Cute shots and reflections. Which is Gus and which is Gary.

Canada geese are neat creatures, one is always on look-out when they are feeding!

EG Wow said...

Gus and Gary, eh? They look very friendly, not at all afraid of humans or their cameras.

Ron said...

OMG, these are freakin' AWESOME photos, Dianne!

Holy cow, the clarity and sharpness of the detail in their color and markings are faaaaabulous!

Loved that you named them Gus and Gary!

The thing I admire about geese is their moxie. They're not afraid of anything!


Woody said...

I like that first one, it's almost like "Hey, where'd everybody go??"

Sylvia K said...

Such terrific shots, Dianne! I love the geese! And these have personality -- or they were just showing off for you! Fun ones for the day! Enjoy your weekend!


Lynette Killam said...

Great shots, Diane, and how clever of you to cover three memes at one time! I love that your geese have names...:)

That top photo is my favorite...he's so stately. And the water reflecting makes it all the more pretty.

Fun to watch but they sure make a mess of the pathways around here.

They look like high-struttin' folks!

(With apologies to Robert Louis Stevenson)

I had a little shadow
No bigger than my thumb;
I took him to the meadow
And there I gave him rum.

My drunken little shadow
Did weave and bob and pitch;
He stumbled from the meadow
And fell into a ditch!

These birds look so stately, handsome (and they certainly know it too :)

Happily for the photographer, there are no hatchlings. Geese are quite protective of their young. So these bachelors can play the part of models - and you have captured them well!

Gattina said...

Gorgeous shots ! these geese look o elegant !

Tracy said...

They really are gorgeous aren't they? I think we see them so often that we don't often stop to see how beautiful they are...your photos reminded me!

Dave said...

I like the one with the vignetting, it really shows the grace yet prowess of the bird.

Spadoman said...

Who is who? I love Gus and Gary, especially on a nice sunny day. Great shadow shots, all of them!
Hope all is good with you.


Patti said...

Great photos, Dianne.
Let's see, if two more happen by you can name them Greg and George...or Garrett and Gilbert.
Or something like that!

I like your whiny/woozy sister act idea.
I looked up woozy after I wrote that post and learned it was indeed a word, as you pointed out. ;-)

Enjoy your Mother's Day!

chubskulit said...

Gorgeous captures.

My Critter post, please come and see.

Rajesh said...

Fantastic series of shots.

'Tsuki said...

Oh that so cute pictures, Dianna ! Well done : it is actually a very good choice for our weekly contest !

Joan said...

It would be great to see them everyday. Beautiful shots!

Such nice of pictures of these geese! I also love the water and all the green and colors of the trees.

Thanks for asking about us. I've just been so busy with work and we're also getting ready to move back to California in just under two weeks now. We've been living in PA but are moving back home for family reasons. Hopefully, I'll get back to blogging after the move.

Take care!!
