A Flock of Geese

When I first took these pictures, I thought, A bunch of geese.

Until I noticed the second goose from the left.

My initial dismay, at the thought of his obvious hunting accident, turned to realization as I remembered that a lot of birds will perch on one foot while resting the other.

Then I noticed these shots of our happy couple from yesterday’s courtship pictures.

They had gotten used to my presence and rested quite comfortably.  Notice how they sleep on one leg.
