I'd like to introduce you to Clarice and Cornelius Canada-Goose and Blake Heron.

Gawk! Gawk! Clarice!

What Cornelius! I'm eating.... Can't you see?

Gawk! There's some more *&%# tourists coming and she's got a camera! 

Oh! Do my hips look fat in these feathers?

Blake interjects: "You're giving them your best side dearie!"

Here we are in North Carolina and this pair of Canada geese beat us to it! 

This pond is in the middle of a new build subdivision in Mooresville behind the famous barn. The high end homes that encroach on the south side of the pond can barely be seen in the top left hand corner of this upper photo.

I'm always glad when I see a pair of geese, seeing as they mate for life. There's nothing more sad than spotting just one goose. I know humans sometimes get way carried away, but if we still mated for life as convention dictated not that many years ago, then this world we live in today would be a different place.

Considering my first two choices of mates, that world would NOT be a better one!

All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.

Animals can certainly have a lot to teach us... if we would just listen.

I love Canadian Geese. They are such interesting critters. I used to work in a cemetary....well they thought it was an open know. I looked forward to the time of year when they would drop in for a visit. Sure do talk alot...probably why I like them. TeeHee

D-Jan... Well...They're whole name is Clarice and Cornelius Canada-Geese. It's a hyphenated name you see because Cornelius's mother didn't want to lose her identity!

Canada geese are so much fun to watch and like you I love to see them in pairs. Great names for all three.
