This Canada Goose couple appeared to be looking for the perfect place to build a nest and raise the family! This was taken along the creek near our home.

We had a pair around here for a while and then a third one moved in and then they all left. Don't know what was up with that. Usually the pair stays around all summer.

A wildlife scene unfolding as they look for that perfect spot. Beautifully captured and composed. I love the high bank they are on, the mix of gorgeous colors. Fantastic job with the sharpness of the details on the geese and that misty fog in the background adds so much to the look of this beauty. Awesome my friend.
Have a great day.

Beautiful nature scene Jeff. The Canada Goose mates for life. With all the flooding here this spring we have found birds nesting in the most unusual places. They think they have their own special swimming pools.

Beautiful scene, very beautifully captured, Jeff!! We have a few that will stay locally but thousands that just stop over and eat the farms crops on their way to nest in Canada and Alaska. Oh do the farmers love them..LOL..
