Flight after flight of Canada Geese arrived well before sunrise. Today I observed 3 variants of Canadas, the local greater Canada, Alaskan Dusky and the very small Cackling geese (not much larger than a Mallard Duck)
1..2...3 Mallard Drakes swing past the camera for a look! (click on images)
A Snow Goose group flies past .. Saw 14 of them today, and many were juveniles

The shots above and below are White Fronted Geese ... I have been hearing them fly overhead for the past 10 days... On their way South from Summering and nesting in the Arctic!

The weekend went by very quickly indeed and I just wanted to thank all of you kind folks who blessed me with your visit! Thank you ever so much for your support! I love finding small creatures to photograph and sharing them here! Have a terrific week... TerryV
