the geese of South Pond by quietpurplehaze

the geese of South Pond

Yesterday I posted a recent shot of South Pond and it is Peter's - @pcoulson - comment in response which has prompted me to seek out some shots of the geese, who lived there in their heyday, and make a collage.

In the photo top right I had (dearly departed) Jinks with me and the geese were advancing towards him - not that he was scared.

Jinks was not scared of anything - other than water( except drinking water of course) and the (to him inexplicably terrifying) noise of the smoke alarm when I burnt the sausages.

Well - great times - and great photographic times!
They are beautiful.

Great collage. I’m more used to seeing our Canada Geese. Are these domesticated geese, or do you have these white ones in the wild .

Anne, that was a very funny encounter with Jinks not batting an eyelid, so to speak!

I guess I would call these particular geese semi domesticated! But yes white are domesticated

Nice... characterful geese strutting their stuff! I guess they don't know where the table is that they'll end up on!

They always remind me of Jemima Puddleduck with those stretched out necks and lovely orange footed waddle! Lovely

You've captured them with such care, their personality shines through each time.
