Thank you for all of your great comments!

These geese were all lined up, on the edge of the pond, taking a bath. It's funny, one of the geese didn't like me taking their photograph. It came up to me, on two occasions and tried to bite me. That didn't scare me away, I held my ground!! LOL!!

Take care,
