Geese In The Water

I've been having a little trouble coming up with things to say in a post, which is why I'm not posting quite as often as I'd like again. So I thought I'd just share this picture of geese in the water from the same little adventure I talked about in my last post. I meant to show it sooner. I could watch geese swim for hours, and I have. I'll talk to you next time.

I'm Back, With Some Old Friends

I'm back, and I brought some old friends with me. I didn't mean to be gone for so long. In fact, I didn't mean to be gone at all. It kind of just began with a couple of days and it turned in to a few weeks. I guess I just wanted some time off.

But I went out and found some old friends that reminded me that I was forgetting one of the things I love. I found these geese in the nature area of a business complex. I never seem to see them in the country.

I guess geese have developed a relationship with humans. They come around and feed off of the refuse and scraps that we leave them. I never realized this was happening before I moved away from Michigan and into the country. I was only in the city back then too.

It seems like a few years ago when I was in Michigan every other post was about geese or maybe squirrels. Now I rarely see either one, squirrels a little more often. I remember posting about a group of geese from the time they were eggs till they grew up. I watched the whole thing. It was fascinating.

My old geese saw me so often that they began to see me as a friend. They would come up close to me just because they didn't have any fear. They never expected anything of me. I never fed them or bribed them in any way. These geese today ran from me.

But that's okay. I may never go back to this place. It's not much for nature, but it does have some nice scenery. I have so many nature parks to visit that I want to visit all of them first. On this same day I found a new place that reminds me quite a bit of my old nature parks from Michigan. I'll revisit that one very soon. Who knows? Maybe there will be geese there too. I'll talk to you again soon.
