After a several week cyber hiatus, Sally and her mobile photography challenge are back for another round in 2017. Sally, I hope you had a wonderful and refreshing time. Perhaps one day I’ll summon the fortitude to do the same. 🙂
Today we’re back to nature as our theme. Supposedly geese fly south in the winter, away from the chilly northern Illinois temperatures. But each year there are plenty of them left well into winter. As you can see from my photo, they gather on the river en masse, honking and readying themselves for take off, although where they’re actually going is anyone’s guess. It reminds me of an avian airport with one runway. After sufficiently getting their engines going, a small flock takes off, amid much racket. When the proper interval has passed, then next group does the same. However, despite all the takeoffs and the time of year, the goose population in our area is still doing well.
Other than the frame, this shot looks as it did when I took it on a cold but beautiful morning.
