Cleared for Landing

Canada Geese landing on waterIt is a fabulous time of year at the lake. We had our first measurable snowfall of the year (1/2″). Also, 100 or more Canada Geese have taken up temporary residence on their way south for the winter.

The geese fly in in the morning and swim back and forth across the lake several times during the day. They go from shore to shore where they spend time sunning and preening – always with one standing lookout. I am always fascinated watching them circle the lake before making their landing approach. Watching the way they twist and position their wings on approach to land right where they want.
