Canada Geese (branta canadensis)
I'm sure you all like a laugh as much as I do and I could not resist a shot of these geese standing on the edge of the lake and staring out mindlessly, all stood on one leg. I would have loved to have known what was passing through their minds (if anything). Probably making sexist remarks about the ladies further up the lake !!!!
Hope it gives you a few moments of chuckle.
Seriously grateful thanks for the tremendous response to the Fox. Very flattering. Particular thanks to the following (I have pm'd them all) for the user awards.Ken,Louise,Don,Alfie,David,Carole,Linda,Mike,Mex.
I appreciate it beyond mere words.

Like my earlier shot of a trio of Canada geese, you have them in a diagonal line, Graham, but how the heck do you get them to hop all at the same time? GrinGrinGrin
A super capture and presentation.
