The Geese Are Moving
It seems that everywhere I go I am seeing gaggles(hordes) of geese resting in their favorite places. What are these places? The places I find them aren't lakes or ponds. Well, I guess it's not really a big secret or anything, and since it's you who I'm talking to, I guess I can tell you. The place I constantly find these geese are on any large patch of grass.
If you have a large yard with no fences or any wide open area that is full of grass, and you live in an area like mine, you'll see geese laying around. The grass has to be short. If it's even half as tall as the geese they won't like it. They especially love freshly mown grass. Mowing kicks up all kinds of stuff that they like to eat.
This is also the time to be careful around the geese. They won't really do like a squirrel would, and run towards you to protect their territory. They're only visiting, so they are only there to rest. But if you get too close to a goose you might be sorry.
A goose is much bigger than a squirrel. They can seriously injure you if you seem like a threat. Most of the time they'll just ignore you or move away, but not if you get a particularly mean one that doesn't want to move away from you. You can still get close to the edge of their group as long as you don't bother them too much.
The pictures could have been better if I wasn't still experimenting with my new camera add-ons. One of these times I'll find the right balance to use the camera and the add-ons correctly. I hope I will. For now the pictures are inferior to what I was getting before, except they're a lot closer to the animals.
It's been raining here for several days and there's no end in sight yet. I hope to show you a few interesting things I've seen before the weather changed. Maybe now in the next several days is my chance. This will all work out one way or another. I'll be right back here tomorrow, and today I'll be trying to catch up on reading your blogs. You all have a lot of blogs that I like so much. See you soon!
